Learn Japanese at the TUM Language Center

日本語コースへようこそ!

Japanese is spoken by about 127 million people. A distinctive feature of Japanese is its complex writing system. It consists of two writing systems: Kanji (漢字) comes from the Chinese writing system. Hiragana (平仮名 or ひらがな) and Katakana (片仮名 or カタカナ) are syllabaries, or phonetic writing systems. In the Japanese courses at the TUM Language Center, you can study up to level A2.4, where you will learn Hiragana and Katakana and approximately 300 Kanji.

Language Courses during the semester

We offer Japanese courses from level A1.1 to A2.4 following the CEFR.

Block Courses in Lecture-free Periods
