The Luxembourg citizenship exam. What it is and how you can pass it

The Luxembourg citizenship test consists of two parts. The first is the language test, also known as the Sproochentest. The second is a test of your understanding of the social structure, organisation and history of the country.

You must pass both parts and receive certificates confirming your knowledge. These must be presented when you apply for citizenship.


This exam is made up of two parts: one for speaking (at A2 level) and one for listening (at B1 level). The speaking test consists of answering a card. It includes prescribed topics such as "hobbies", "creativity", "work" and others.

The listening test is a test of your listening comprehension skills. You will be asked to listen to a number of passages in a variety of formats and to answer the questions on the test form.

Vivre ensemble au Grand-Duché de Luxembourg courses

This is a second step towards citizenship. Vivre ensemble au Grand-Duché de Luxembourg is an integration course. It introduces the applicant to the social and cultural organisation of the country and to its history.

The course is divided into several blocks:

  • Citizens' rights — 6 hours;
  • Institutions of Luxembourg — 12 hours;
  • History of Luxembourg — 6 hours.

At the end of the Vivre ensemble au Grand-Duché de Luxembourg course, you will have to take an exam. You can try without knowing all the main topics — it is not forbidden. The course and the exam are free of charge, so everyone is welcome to try.

There are several ways to prepare for the exam. One of them is to take a demo version of the exam under realistic conditions. This involves solving test questions and writing a kind of practice test. As this is a demo version of the exam, there is no guarantee of 100% correspondence with the actual questions. However, the exercises are based on the recommendations of the Ministry of Education. They are as close as possible to what you will see in the real exam. This is a good way for you to see if you will be able to pass the exam.

However, even if you are preparing for the Vivre Ensemble exam in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg with the demo version, we still recommend that you attend an integration course. This will give you a lot of useful information and will not break your budget.

Register for the exam when you are sure of your abilities. It is only possible to do this from within the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.
