Language learners trying to master Luxembourgish will have a chance to meet the author of a self-teaching language book in Luxembourg this Saturday.

Liz Wenger, who developed “Learn Luxembourgish” as a way to teach her Canadian husband her native tongue, will be at the Cité Bibliothèque on August 6, from 5pm to 6pm.

There she will be selling and signing books as well as sharing tips on how to learn and perfect the language.

Wenger published the book in March 2015 after developing fun and interactive materials and exercises to help her husband learn Luxembourgish. She studied a certification in teaching Luxembourgish at the INLand her book applies the Comon European Framework of Reference for Languages in the way it is structured. It is pitched at learners at level A1.1 and A1.2 (beginners).

Throughout the book are QR codes which, when scanned, take the reader to listening exercises which can be accessed via smartphone. There are also fun games to “drill” the knowledge available online via a code in the book.

The teacher also sells a line of clothing with the statement “Schwätzt Lëtzebuergesch mat mir, ech léieren,” (Speak Luxembourigsh with me, I am learning), to help learners use the language in daily life.
