Learn Russian at the TUM Language Center
Russian is the most spoken Slavic language in the world and is the native language of approximately 150 million people. Over 210 million people around the world speak Russian. It is one of the six official languages of the United Nations and is the most widely used language in Europe.
The TUM Language Center suspends the activities with its Russian partners due to the current geopolitical situation. We thus follow the approach of the DAAD, see: www.jmwiarda.de/2022/03/01/was-science-diplomacy-in-kriegszeiten-bedeutet.
We stand in solidarity with the people in Ukraine and at the same time with all people in Russia who reject war and violence and try to prevent further tragedies. We hope that the war will end soon, that words will soon have more weight than weapons and that we can resume our relations with our Russian partners.
