The best way to learn a new language is by living abroad for several months or years. Otherwise, it is impossible to speak a language fluently. If you are atudying any language related degree, like language translation, Erasmus programmes are the cheapest and easiest way to improve your language skills.

Do you know the history of the Erasmus programme? Do you know which countries participate and how many students have participated in the Programme to date?

The Erasmus Programme is a European Union student exchange programme and gives you the possibility of doing an exchange period of between 3 months and 12 months at one of your University’s partner Universities.

The Programme, together with a number of other independent Programmes, was incorporated into the Socrates Programme established by the European Commission in 1994. After ending on 31 December 1999, the Socrates Programme was replaced with the Socrates II Programme 24 January 2000, which in turn was replaced by the Lifelong Learning Programme 2007-2013 on 1 January 2007. An Erasmus exchange student receives a grant from the EU to help cover the additional expense of living abroad. The amount of grant is decided per academic year. Currently, the annual budget is in excess of 450 million euro and more than 2.2 million students have participated since it started in 1987. Lastly, over 4,000 higher education institutions participate and there are more to come!

For studies, as well as internships, the following countries offer the possibility of taking part in Erasmus: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Turkey and United Kingdom.

Now, you just have to decide the language that you want to learn and choose the right country. It’s that simple!
