Bass du prett? Da lass! – Are you ready? Then let’s get started!

Wéi vill Sprooche schwätzt Dir? 

Here is one of the first questions the examiner may ask you. And you can use these sentences:

  • Ech schwätzen dräi Sproochen, an zwar Polnesch, Russesch an Englesch. An ech léiere Lëtzebuergesch. – I speak three languages, more precisely Polish, Russian and English. And I’m learning Luxembourgish.
  • Ech schwätze fléissend dräi Sprooche fléissend, an zwar Spuenesch, Franséisch, Englesch an ech versti ganz gutt Italienesch. Elo schwätzen ech och e bësse Lëtzebuergesch. 

 I speak three languages fluently, more precisely Spanish, French, English and I understand very well Italian. Now I also speak a little Luxembourgish.

Important:

The verb to speak is schwätzen. I often hear students using another verb (which I will not name on purpose so as to avoid any confusion) that does NOT exist.

Firwat léiert Dir Lëtzebuergesch?

  • Ech wunnen zënter 5 Joer hei a Lëtzebuerg gefält mir gutt. Ech wëll hei bleiwen, mech integréieren a Leit kenneléieren. Ech léieren och Lëtzebuergesch fir meng Kolleegen op der Aarbecht ze verstoen.

I’ve been living here for 5 years and I like Luxembourg very much. I want to stay here, to integrate and meet people. I also learn Luxembourgish to understand my colleagues at work. 

  • Mäi Jong geet an d’ Primärschoul an eisem Duerf. Hie versteet a schwätzt och Lëtzebuergesch. Mäi Mann ass Lëtzbuerger. Dofir ass et wichteg fir mech d’Sprooch léieren. An ech wëll och mat mengen Noperen a aneren Elteren Lëtzebuergesch schwätze kënnen.

    My son goes to the primary school in our village. He also understands and speaks Luxembourgish. My husband is a Luxembourger. That’s why it’s important for me to learn the language. And I want to be able to speak Luxembourgish with my neighbours and other parents also.     

Wéi eng Method benotzt Dir fir Lëtzebuegesch ze léieren?

  • Virun der Pandemie war ech an engem Gruppecours a menger Gemeng. Elo léieren ech mat online Coursen. Dat ass praktesch. An ech hunn och eemol d’Woch e Cours online mat engem Proff fir schwätzen ze üben. Ech benotzen och en online Dictionaire.

 Before the pandemic, I went to a group class in my commune. Now I learn with online courses. That’s convenient. And I also have a lesson online with a teacher once a week to practice speaking. I also use an online dictionary.

  • Ech léieren eleng doheem mat Bicher, mat enger App.  An ech sinn an engem online Gruppecours ageschriwwe fir reegelméisseg ze üben.

  I learn alone at home with books and an app. And I am registered in an online group   class to practice regularly.  

Have you noticed:

to practice a language is in Luxembourgish üben
