One of the best things about Luxembourg is the international character of the country. Most people speak at least three languages fluently and the next border is never far away. There are a lot of mixed marriages ("real" Luxembourgers are getting scarce, we didn't produce any :-)) and it is fairly normal to have classmates with 15 different nationalities.

Our community consists of three villages and we live in the smallest of those three.
It is a rather small community..... +/- 7.800 inhabitants. I knew there were a lot of foreigners living in our village and neigbouring villages, but I was quite surprised to see this list .... 80 different nationalities! How cool is that?! It makes Luxembourg a really great, tolerant place for raising a family.
