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.

There are also compact courses, which take place in the first or second half of the semester and follow each other, as well as the Grammar course 'Italian B1/B2 - Grammar Compact'

Not every course may be offered every semester.
Please determine your course level by taking our placement test.

Intensive courses (course levels may vary) take place during the semester break in spring and fall.

The intensive courses take place over a shorter period of time, but have more training units per week than the courses during the semester. The number of ECTS and the workload is therefore the same as for the semester-long courses.

Current dates and registration deadlines can be found on our homepage.

You can find a complete overview of our course program in TUMonline.
