    As a student or employee of Erasmus University you are able to purchase a one-year licence for the online Rosetta Stone programme with which you can independently learn the German language. Online learning could either be used to start from scratch or to keep your language skills up-to-date. Please note that this requires discipline and persistence. In Rosetta Stone you will find exercises for all language skills, such as speaking, listening, reading and writing. Licences can be bought throughout the year. 

    • Be aware that there is no final exam and you won’t receive a certificate.
    • More information about the online course German (and the complete offer of Rosetta Stone) can be found in our factsheet: online language course.
