Bonjour! Guten Tag! Hello!

Learning a language – unlike many other subjects our children study during the school years – can always be a fun process and a source of great satisfaction – for both juniors and parents – due to its practicability that can be tested in so many different circumstances.

At Languages.lu, the language programmes for kids were conceived for my nephew, Alex, who used to spend all summer holidays in Luxembourg with me. I really wanted Alex to improve his language skills by playing and having fun with other kids, because I was convinced that this would be a great strength for his future. Meanwhile it was a fantastic way for him to spend the school holidays, make new friends and have fun…

Today, Alex is more than 20 years old and sometimes still participates in the language programmes during the summer holidays… however, not as a student because he is perfectly fluent in English and French, but as a team leader in charge of supervising the children and assisting the teachers.

If you look at the main aims of our language programmesyou will notice that they haven’t changed much since they were built around Alex’s needs and expectations:

  • Learning and practicing a new language in a multilingual, multicultural and friendly environment,
  • Enabling kids to build social relationships and make new friends from different countries and cultures,
  • Discovering the practical side of the language in a context of genuine communication, without the pressure of school grades and helping kids to communicate better.,
  • Motivating kids, helping them gain self confidence and giving them support in the right scholastic direction.

If you are interested in investing in your children’s future by providing them with a total immersion experience in French, German or English, Languages.lu in Luxembourg is the perfect choice because

we take care of your children as if they were ours!

I look forward to personally welcoming you to our school!                                                                                                                                                                                              Daniela Clara Moraru, Founder & Director.

Our methodology

Over the years Languages.lu has built its reputation with an innovative and unique approach to teaching.

The emphasis is based on natural and spontaneous communication which helps the juniors:

  • on one side, acquire and revise vocabulary and grammar, improve their oral expression and interaction, and
  • on the other side, practice the language through creative, musical and cultural activities, which are adapted to and incorporate the students’ passions and interests.

Although it appears to be a contradiction to the development in recent years of the means of communication, our children now have less time and fewer opportunities to play and communicate with each other. This situation has created an increasing burden of homework, more time spent in front of their TV, computer or on their smart phones. Our generation of children devotes less and less time to each other and this means that, sometimes, they don’t develop some of the fundamental communication skills.

Thanks to our language courses, your children can meet and interact with other children from different countries and cultures. They have fun together while learning, practicing a foreign language and developing their communication skills in a different language than their mother tongue.

In addition, all our language programmes are developed with the greatest attention to the prerequisites outlined by the European Common Reference Framework for Languages, which are valid in all European countries.

*******************

Our CAMPS are conceived to allow the juniors to discover the practical side of the language, to help them gain confidence in themselves and to communicate better, to make new friends and have a great time during the school holidays.

The discovery of the language is made through activities that are fun, interesting, educational and practical, and which are adapted to the group’s age and language level.

We do not recreate the stressful and competitive school environment, but rather allow the juniors to advance at their own pace.

The activities may include cooking activities to learn the fruits and vegetables vocabulary and to introduce international recipes from each other’s country, different handicrafts such as masks, jewellery and origami creations.

Children can learn about the 7 wonders of the world, role play birthday parties, write and act out short plays or soap-opera episodes, watch and comment on suitable movies.

Teenagers could learn and debate about leadership, cultural resemblances and differences, importance of self-confidence, play outdoor games that encourage both team spirit and communication skills in the acquired language…

Our camps are offered during all school holidays in Luxembourg, France, Germany and Belgium:

  • Carnival
  • Easter
  • Pentecost
  • Summer holidays (from mid June to mid September),
  • All Saints
  • Christmas

N.B. Please note that the camps are not the equivalent of school tutoring. Our camps focus on oral communication, in order to allow all participants to express themselves and gain confidence.

Should your child have specific problems in school with grammar rules, pronunciation etc, we recommend you to let him join our Individual school tutoring programme.
