The Luxembourg People
Men shake hands, even with non-peers, men/women give women three kisses on the cheeks (peer/non-peer, but usually only same age) Younger people often use the expression "salut" (like the French) to say hi, older generations use "Moien" or "Bonjour" (French words are often used to speak in a more "distinguished" way. To greet someone one would generally say "Moien" in the morning, "Metteg" during the day and , "n'Owend" in the evening, n'Owend is the short form of gudden Owend or good evening. "Salut" is widely used by younger generations (age 30 or less). To get someone's attention on would call their name, shout, whistle, or wave hand sign. Typically their is no public display of affection however, kisses are becoming more accepted. In school, students not only learn Luxembourgish their native language but they start German classes at age 4, French at age 6, English at 12, and a 5th language at age 15 (either Portuguese, Italian or Spanish).
