Learning French in Luxembourg
I am communting to Luxembourg from London each week, and would like to find a way to learn at least some french to survive!
I speak no french at all - and was wondering if anyone knows of some night courses during the week, or just meetings of like minded french learners to try and learn in a more relaxed environment.
I have had a look at the major providers (prolingua and inlingua) but would also be interested in anyone's opinion on places (or methods) that are most effective.

...but I already know a little of the language.
I was considering putting an advert in the local paper, as I am pretty sure there are people who want to learn English, and we could help each other out.

Kath, check out the www.ltb.lu, they offer french courses at night. They already started but just a week ago, you can still catch up.

Vaughan and RK I see some good potential here! Maybe we can meet up sometime.
I am going back to London tonight, but will be back on Monday morning (12 Oct) so would be free to meet up.

Same situation as Kath. Commuting each week, and I speak barely enough French to order meals at restaurants and am finding it hugely embarrasing.
I've sent you a note kath to see if you've found anything yet, but any other advice or tips on where to go for a couple of hours of lessons each week on either a Tuesday or Wednesday would be massively appreciated

Many of my friends are doing this course at the moment. For those who would like to learn french or who are just curious to have a look at it here is the address. www.clickonfrench.com

I am eager to take French lessons but the lessons are soooo expensive! Is there anyone who would be interested in an exchange 3 times a week for 4 hours per day if you would like learn English?
i will arrive to France 1/18/2008.
Please help...I don't want to spend sooo much money.

Salut, je m'appelle Jill et j'écris une rédaction sur le thème "Luxembourg et son trilinguisme - avantage ou inconvénient?". Est-se qu'il y a des jeunes de Luxembourg qui peuvent me raconter quelque chose de ce thème. Peut - être vous pouvez me donner votre adresse e-mail et je vais vous envoyer un questionnaire. J'espère que quelqu'un peut m'aider...Jill 14 Mar 2008, 02:52 - Report

Hi I have moved to Lux in May 08 from Wales and need to learn French. Can someone tell me of any night courses or if any one knows of a tutor.

I will be living in Luxembourg soon. But how is it really with the languages there. They should speak three languages, or? I speak German but not French. It is possible to survive there with German but without French knowledge (at the beginning of my stay)? I would like to learn during the time some French, but learning language takes time.
I am grateful for any information.
Thank you very much!Ivana 10 Jan 2009, 05:27 - Report
Hello, we're looking for someone that is interested in teaching French to 2-4 children through games, etc. The ages are between 4 and 7, but the kids are all quite keen and are looking forward to trying to learn. We live in Howald and our friends children would come to us from Manternach. We want basic language skills for communication and for playing with other children so no need to work on much writing, etc, just a lot of creativity!! Thanks for any reply: [email removed]

Hi, my name is Alva, I'm 24 and I have just moved to Luxembourg from Ireland and am living just outside the city. I learned French when I was in school but haven't spoken any since then. I was quite good so I'm hoping it will come back to me without too much trouble, but I will need some help. I'm available during the day/night. I'm looking for any classes or tutoring or french-for-english exchange.. anything that will help really. If you have any suggestions, please let me know! My email is: [email removed]

I will be coming to Luxembourg from England for 5 months in March and I would like to enrol for French classes for biginners. I would prefer to attend evening classes or classes on Saturdays. I have conducted some research and I can only see very expensive courses, for like 550 EUR for a few hours. Does anyone know of any good language schools/centres somewhere close to the centre which are a bit cheaper? Your advice would be appreciated. If you do please e-mail me at: [email removed] Many thanksAnia 17 Jan 2009, 02:19 - Report
Have you ever considered the software or online course called Rosetta Stone? You can buy the software, or purchase a 6 month/year subscription in the language of your choice. I will be moving to Lux in March, and found this is the best way to take classed in the convenience of your own home.

Hi there/ Hallo,
in Luxemburg kommt man auch mit Deutsch ganz schnell zum Ziel, schöner wäre es auf Französisch, aber man kann sich ja langsam entweder Luxemburgisch oder Französisch annähern. =)Annika 03 Apr 2009, 09:44 - Report

I just came to live in Luxembourg a month ago, started a course in Prolingua - intensive one, level 1. The course finished and i know nothing. It's so not worth it according to me... 550 euro for 3 weeks, only 2 hours and a half, not even full week, and they call that intensive!
I would like to ask if anyone knows something better, which is really intensive, as i need to learn the language fast, please write to me: [email removed]
I was thinking to find any kind of job, as i don't really need to work, just to be in french speaking environmet at least. i'm kind of worried that i'm just wasting my time
Good luck to everyone else,
