Welcome to Luxembourg! With the help and support of Mylanguage, AMCHAM Luxembourg has developed: “My first 500 words and phrases in The 5 Languages of Luxembourg”, a BEGINNER, INTERMEDIATE and ADVANCED 5 languages survival guide (English, French, German, Luxembourgish, Portuguese) which enables a speaker of any one language to learn the other four.

The LL5 and LL7 applications and website simultaneously deliver audio and written content at beginner, intermediate and advanced levels targeting newly arrived refugees who need language self-training tools for immediate oral communication needs. The applications will be available for download at no cost as of October 2017.
The Œuvre Nationale de Secours Grande-Duchesse Charlotte is a public institution under the supervision of the Prime Minister of Luxembourg. It runs and organizes the National Lottery. Its mission is to promote philanthropy in Luxembourg. Its initial purpose of aiding victims of World War II has been broadened over the years to support the many philanthropic activities and projects conducted by organizations in the fields of social issues, culture, environmental protection and sport.
The Œuvre’s goals and values can be summarized as the protection of the most vulnerable, providing aid to the disadvantaged, and in general to promote the well-being of individuals and the community. To do so, the Œuvreis in touch with those active in the field and regularly involves itself in investigations with key players from a large network of associations. In order to identify and meet the needs that occur in our society, the OEuvre launches calls for projects such as “Actions Addictions”, “Respect”, “Yes We Care” and mateneen.
Launched in late December 2015 by the Œuvre Nationale de Secours Grande-Duchesse Charlotte in response to the migrant flows and the huge wave of public solidarity, mateneen is a call for projects that is unique in Europe. With the selection process having ended in July 2016, the call for projects with 15 million euros at its disposal is enabling 80 project holders from the civil society to implement projects designed to bring the people of Luxembourg and the new arrivals together, and to facilitate the latter’s integration. The mateneen programme has not been conceived exclusively for refugees. In placing emphasis on making displaced people self-sufficient and on social cohesion in the broadest sense, it intends to be actively engaged in forging the society of the future.
