The school year in Luxembourg begins on September 15. Schools will accept all their students within the walls. This is a first since the start of the pandemic.
This year there is a high demand for English language schools. Or rather, for English-language education at all levels. This requires additional professionals’ involvement. The solution was found quickly: now, along with private schools, there are several public schools that offer either the International Baccalaureate (IB) or English at A1-A2 levels.
The problem is that the education system of the Grand Duchy remains inflexible and straightforward. That is, students still need to master three languages (Luxembourgish, German and French) in order to successfully finish their education. This is confirmed by the results of a regular OECD survey. Also according to these, Luxembourg students perform below average in science, reading and mathematics.
