Accelerating Trilingual Language Learning with Babbel

Founded in 1949, the École d’Hôtellerie et de Tourisme du Luxembourg (EHTL) is the only public school in the country that provides training in the hotel, gastronomy, and tourism sectors. It welcomes 300 students and promotes innovative digital training (computer equipment for students, digital textbooks, blended learning courses, etc.).

Top 3 Reasons for Babbel

  • Pragmatic approach
  • Access to 14 languages
  • The flexibility of use

The Challenge

EHTL holds courses in French, English, and German, and students must demonstrate proficiency of all three languages before completing their studies. However, EHTL students start with significantly varying language levels. In addition, students have the opportunity to do an internship abroad, where they have to learn the basics of yet another language. That’s why EHTL had to find a solution that complements their existing language courses to enable students to complete their training and broaden their horizons, whether in Luxembourg or elsewhere.

Why Babbel?

Babbel stood out because of its access to 14 languages, the quality of the learning content, as well as the “French Cuisine” module that aligns perfectly with the school’s teaching objectives.

“Babbel is a useful tool that allows us to offer tailored and differentiated courses, so that each student advances at their own pace.”

French Teacher and
E-Learning Expert, EHTL

“The app is convenient because it can be used anywhere: on the bus, during lunch breaks. No more excuses!”

Nadine Reding,

German Teacher, EHTL

Babbel enables the students to improve their language skills while also learning to work independently, and the weekly usage reports allow teachers to monitor their learning progress.

Thanks to Babbel and the CEFR placement test, EHTL was able to evaluate each student’s language level in all three languages.



The École d’Hôtellerie et de Tourisme du Luxembourg was looking for a flexible and digital language learning solution to accelerate mastery of the three languages that are essential at the school and in Luxembourg. With Babbel, students can learn at their own pace and level, complementing the language courses at the school.
