If your Luxembourgish is good enough to follow basic conversations, but you still need to practice, World Talk is for you.

Everything you’ll hear in the program is in Luxembourgish, but you don’t need to know every word before you start. Listen for key words that you already know, then pick up new words in the same way you would when talking to a native speaker.

What will I learn?

To keep on listening. When a word comes up that we don’t recognise, we often stop listening because we’re focusing on that one word and nothing else. This program lets you grasp the gist of what someone’s saying without getting hung up on the words you don’t understand.

You will develop your practical knowledge of Luxembourgish. There are 10 different games covering numbers, conversations, descriptions, sentence building, directions and dictation practice. These activities cover a wide range of subjects and give you important practical skills that you can use immediately.

How does it work?

Play interactive language games and earn points for every game you play. High scorers can go on to win bronze, silver and gold awards, which you can print out as a record of achievement.

You’ll start to think in Luxembourgish! World Talk is an ‘immersive’ experience: in this program you will only hear Luxembourgish. You’ll learn to associate the language with memorable images – not just the equivalent words in your own language. This means you’ll start thinking in Luxembourgish, which will make you quicker at understanding and recalling words.
