Learn Italian at the TUM Language Center

Benvenuti a Italiano!
Italian is one of the most studied and loved languages in the world. Why? Not just because of its expressive power and musicality. Since ancient times, the Italian language and culture have had an immense influence on the intellectual development of Europe and continue to do so today. Learning Italian means diving into the philosophy of life that this language radiates.

We offer Italian courses from level A1.1 to C1 following the CEFR.
