How to switch language keyboard combination?

On Windows I am able to switch between keyboard layouts by pressing ALT+SHIFT. Is there a similar keyboard shortcut in Ubuntu?

Go to System Settings > Keyboard Layout > Layout > Options > Key(s) to change layout.

You should be able to select one or more key combinations to change your keyboard layout.

But you cannot add custom shortcuts for example [Meta/Win]+[Space]. So is it possible to add your own shortcut? – Sonique May 13 '15 at 10:31
This does not work on is System Settings > Text Entry – bordeo Feb 20 at 18:13

The same. If don't work, choose keyboard layouts and then preferences and keys to switch the layout.
