Learn French at the TUM Language Center
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.

In the summer semester 2021, the first e-tandem project between the French program at the TUM Language Center and INSA in Toulouse was launched.
In the winter semester 2021-2022, we will continue the supervised project under the name "French-German-Tandem-TUM-INSA B1". This is a special opportunity to intensify one's French skills and explore cultural differences through a French-German autonomous project work.
Students with a B1 level in French can register in TUMonline.
