Local language school Languages.lu on 3 January announced the publication of an audio eBook, ambitiously named “365 days to learn Luxembourgish”.

Based on the 2016 print version of the learning method, the learning tool provides mini lessons in a digital file format for each day of the year. Theoretically, following the diet should allow learners to pass the A1 level.

“Thanks to this new format, the learner can hear and read at the same time, and work on both the oral and written comprehension of the Luxembourgish language,” said the school’s director Clara Moraru in a press release. She explained that the new format was chosen to “meet the needs of an increasingly digital learning environment.”

The eBook--available here for €9.99--is a new tool in a growing selection of Luxembourgish language learning material, needed as the number of learners continues to evolve. For the 2020-2021 period, 5,566 people were enrolled in the INL language centre to learn the grand duchy’s language.
