What are the materials included in my course?

Study guide: this is your starting point to dive into the language with vocabulary, grammar notes, pronunciation tips and plenty of exercises for you to practice what you are learning. Each chapter is designed to facilitate a daily habit of learning Lëtzebuergesch.

When offline or reducing screen time, the printed version of the complete Study Guide (booklet) is available for FREE to registered students.

Classroom videos: think of this as your class time with Anne. Each chapter lesson of the Study Guide is supported with a video to highlight specific elements covered and also provide additional exercises. Watch them once, twice or even ten times, they are yours to revisit.

Audios: throughout each chapter you'll learn dialogs introducing you to new vocabulary. To speed up your listening comprehension and pronunciation we've created 24 dialogs for you to access, working through your new vocabulary, grammar and tricky pronunciations. You can download them and hit re-play to practice continually.

Flashcards: a great method to acquire new vocabulary - by working spelling and pronunciation. Completely portable so you can review and learn the words anywhere/anytime.

Chapter Tests: an effective tool to test your knowledge at the end of each chapter. Even better? You can work them on your phone, tablet, computer where and when you want.

What will my lesson plan look like?

During the week, set aside 45 minutes a day to tackle:

  • 1 lesson from the Study Guide along with the Video companion (30 minutes)
  • 1 Audio companion (3 - 4 minutes)
  • Flash Cards (10 minutes)

This will take you from Monday through Friday. On the weekend, have a quick review and take the chapter test to check your progress (5 - 7 minutes).

Looking for Results?

Our motivated students reach level A1 in just 8 weeks.
