Flu and cold in Luxembourg

I decided to write this short post because Kajus and me sometimes had a conversation on why we didn't get ill in Luxembourg. It was surprising that we used to get ill (flu and cold, I mean) quite often in our respectives countries and in Luxembourg it seemed as if we were protected by a supernatural force : )


We discused if that could be due to the weather, the forest and vegetation around the city, or the apparently low index of pollution. Of course we never decided why, but it was true that Kajus never got ill here in Luxembourg. Neither me until the day before yesterday. Yes, unfortunately I got cold and I cannot say anymore that you will never get ill in Luxembourg. Let's say you get ill less often than in other places. Anyone has an idea of the reason? Please, comments are welcome!!!

Improve your language skills in Luxembourg

We suppose that you arrive in Luxembourg, you are already installed and you should like to meet people and to practise another language than yours... Why not? You have the possibility to talk with nice people, about different topics, to learn a lot of things about other cultures and habits.

Club Polyglotte is a language club that organises meetings to practise foreign languages. It has over 300 registered members from approx. 25 countries: Luxembourg, Belgium, Britain, Bulgaria, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United-States. Subjects/games are suggested as a basis to start conversations in different languages. Club Polyglotte is managed by a couple of volunteers but members can contribute by organising events.

Meetings are held on a weekly basis on Tuesdays from 7:30 p.m. at Foyer Européen. Foyer Européen is located in the centre of the city, it is a warm and comfortable place to socialise and practise languages.
