Learn French at the TUM Language Center

Parlez-vous français?
No? Then it’s time to learn French! French is famous for its beautiful, melodic sound, but did you know that it is spoken on every continent by approximately 220 million people? French is currently the sixth most spoken language in the world. It is the official language of 29 countries, and it is the official language of many international organizations including the UN, NATO and the EU. France is also Germany’s most important commercial partner.
