Passerelles 1- or 2-year classes aim to help young people with socio-professional introduction and integration in Luxemburg by building a professional and realistic project.
To achieve this, the lessons taught throughout the year involve the following:

The beginner level classes (A1-A2) provide students with a solid foundation in French which they need to pursue their professional project. There are no special entrance requirements.
The advanced level classes (A2 to B2) aim to guide and direct the student and it is based on improving the French language in order to integrate them to other Luxemburg structures( for example DAP or university) at the end of the school year. A certain level of French is an entrance requirement.
A computerised language test and further assessment will determine which of our four classes you can attend.
