Hi, my name is Patrick. I am writing this to tell you a little about the
country of Luxembourg. I do not live in Luxembourg, but it is where my great
grandmother was born. Luxembourg is a small county north of France. In
Luxembourg they speak three languages, French, German, and a language called
Letzburgish. Letzburgish is the everyday language. Most newspapers, ads,
signs, ect are in French or German. The population is smaller than New York
City, only about 440,000 people. The size of the country is a slight smaller
than Rhode Island, which is a small US state. Luxembourg's capital is also
called Luxembourg. Luxembourg's government is a democratic government,
meaning the people have choices, like the US, UK, France, ect. Luxembourg is
one of Europe's leading steel producers. The main religion is Roman Catholic
with a small mix of Protestant, Jewish, Muslim, ect. I hope I taught you a
little about this little country. Bye.
Hannah sent this in: Hello, my name is Hannah. I live in Luxembourg and I
speak Letzbergish at school, but English at home. I like everything about Luxembourg
even though we've only lived here for just over a year. Before that we lived in
Scotland and before that I was born in Portugal, although my passport is American.
My friends here are very nice. They come from all over the world, because about
half the families living here have moved here from somewhere else to work. My
favorite place to go is a playground in the city center, which is a giant pirate
ship with slides, climbing frames, and a lot of water that you can actually play
in too! My favorite Luxembourgish foods are Mettwurst (a kind of sausage) and crepes.
My dad really likes the Gromperekichelcher, which is potato pancakes. My mom likes the
coffee shops. The city is really pretty. You should visit it someday!
