Placement test as a prerequisite


The placement test is a prerequisite for a state-subsidized language course at Learn and Speak Leipzig.

The first step on the way to a state-supported language course is the online placement test. This can be supplemented by an on-site interview to determine suitability and the starting module.

The placement test is not an exam. It is simply to determine your language level in order to find the most suitable language course for you. This is the only way to make rapid progress and keep you motivated and having fun during your language-learning process!

For other languages, such as Portuguese, Arabic or Korean, please contact us directly - we will be happy to advise you.

No. 3: Further education check - individual: Sächsische AufbauBank (SAB)

The so-called "Weiterbildungsscheck - individuell" (or "Bildungsscheck Sachsen" for short) is a subsidy for continuing vocational training for private individuals from the Sächsische AufbauBank (SAB). It is funded by the European Union (EU) and the Free State of Saxony.


The target group of the continuing education voucher are individuals with an increased need for support as far as their professional (continuing) education is concerned. These are primarily:

  • Individuals who want to (re)enter working life (e.g. unemployed non-benefit recipients),
  • Apprentices, retrainees, vocational students who are at least 18 years old, and
  • employed individuals


Funding is provided for projects of individual job-related education or further training that aim to

  • improve vocationally useful skills,
  • supplement qualifications and
  • increase employment opportunities.


Subsidy amount: The individual continuing education voucher can cover up to 80% of the continuing education costs, including examination fees.


You are responsible for submitting the application. You can reach your goal in three steps:

  • Choose the right continuing education program for you.
  • Obtain three offers from different providers.
  • Submit the application for funding along with the three offers to the Sächsische AufbauBank.

Note: If your further training costs are less than 2,600 euros (excluding VAT), you can submit the funding application with just one offer.


Detailed information on the procedure and much more can be found at Sächsische AufbauBank (SAB):

  • online (in regards to the individual continuing education check), or
  • by calling the SAB service center at 0351 4910-4930.
