Frequently Asked Questions
When does the course begin?
The course is immediately available upon purchase. You have instant access to all the course materials upon purchase.
How long do I have access to the course material?
This course has been thoroughly elaborated to allow any student to be best prepared to take the Sproochentest in 6 months. But I understand that some people will need some extra time (holidays, business trip, maternity leave, health problems etc) that’s why every one gets 12 months access to the self-study courses A1 Foundation, A2 Consolidation & Exam Preparation. Speaking sessions are limited to a 6-month period (once started you can't pause the period or ask for an extension in case of illness or another personal problem).
Can I have a preview of this course?
Absolutely - simply click this link and preview the entire lesson 1 of A1 Foundation and get a feel for what awaits you.
How and when do I join the group speaking sessions?
Upon purchase you'll receive a welcome email where I introduce you briefly to the program. I'll ask you to tell me when you would like to join the group speaking sessions. Let's say that you join on December 1st, but you would like to join the speaking sessions only as of January 1st. Then you'll be able to participate to the weekly speaking sessions from January 1st until June 30th. There is no possibility to pause the speaking sessions. Once we agreed on a starting date you have a 6-month period (without break) to participate to them.
What is the time commitment per week?
Depending on how quickly you want to reach your goal, that's really up to you. If your goal is to take the exam in the upcoming 6 months, then I recommend that you do 1 chapter 1 week. Each chapter is broken down in 5 easy to manage lessons of 40-45 minutes each. After having gone through 1 chapter, take 30 minutes to test your knowledge by doing the chapter’s quiz and another 20 minutes to practice pronunciation & vocabulary with the online flashcards.
I have level A1. Can I enroll in only one part of your program?
We’ve had a few clients join us saying the same thing at first, but once they actually got inside and saw all the resources, training and effective support we offer - they did not regret. And even if you’ve already level A1 before joining us, you haven’t done it with our unique approach. You will find in our Module A1 resources you haven’t found in any other program and which you can use to refresh the basics all the exercises and quizzes we offer or practice vocabulary with our series of online flashcards and more. This will help you to get even better results.
The whole program is designed as a system for one reason: all the individual modules work together to create results you’re looking for.
Do I get support, community or 1:1 access to you?
Yes you get – for a 6-month period – weekly group live sessions with me or another coach of my team where the focus is on practicing speaking. And by joining this course you'll have access to the private online community group where you get support and feedback and answers to any questions you have. That's also where you'll meet fellow students. There are no 1:1 sessions with me.
When do I need to apply for the Sproochentest at the INL?
If you want to sit the exam in exact 6 months you can apply 2 months before and select a date that suits you on the INL's webpage. Remember that you have 12 months access to the self-study course materials so that you can apply at the INL one month before your access to the course expires.
Am I eligible for a refund if I pass the Sproochentest?
Yes, if you successfully pass the Sproochentest, a part of the cost of the course (up to €750) will be reimbursed by the Luxembourg government. Just email me and I'll send you a receipt of payment.
Are there any other material or equipment costs besides the enrollment cost of the course?
There are few additional resources you can purchase to help you learn Luxembourgish. None of these are required. I recommend 1 tool you should use within the program and it is free.
Is your program really effective?
Yes it is extremely effective. However, it only works if you DO. If you do the work and listen to us, you will get the results you need. If you do not do any work, you won't.
Does your program also prepare to the listening part of the Sproochentest?
Yes, in the module Exam Preparation you'll find listening materials and a mock listening exam section.
What’s the difference between this course and your online courses A1 Foundation, A2 Consolidation and Master the Sproochentest-Oral Exam?
The 3 above mentioned courses are self-study and self-paced online courses. You learn alone, on your own and at your own pace (you have 12 months access). You don’t get any coaching support, no speaking sessions, no feedback on your progress, nor access to a private group community. And there is no learning material to prepare you to the listening comprehension part of the exam.
