Basic training for adults

Improve your writing, reading or calculation skills

Basic training is free of charge. It is available in French or in German.

There are two formulas :

  • Basic training courses  are aimed at a group of adult learners following the same programme.
  • In the basic training workshops, teaching is organised in small groups, with an individualised programme.

New sessions start every quarter in the different regions of the country: Wiltz, Ettelbruck, Warken, Echternach, Kirchberg, Belval.

A guidance session where individual knowledge and personal projects of the learners will be considered, is conducted prior to the admission to the course.

These courses and workshops are mostly aimed at :

  • beginners acquiring literacy in the German or in the French language
  • people who have already acquired some knowledge of German or French and who wish to improve their basic skills :
    • read
    • write
    • calculate
    • navigating in an increasingly digitalized world

The pace of learning is adapted to the socio-professional situation and can vary between 2 and 6 hours per week.

These basic skills will provide a solid foundation for more autonomous and advanced future studies.

Courses are also organised by associations and municipalities.
