Bem-vindos à área de Português! 
Portuguese is a Romantic language and is the native language of more than 140 million people. It is the official language in eight countries: Portugal, Brasil, Angola, Mozambique, Guinea-Bissau, Cape Verde, São Tomé, Príncipe and East Timor.

You can choose Portuguese courses from level A1 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 communication courses and Portuguese for spanish speakers ('Português para hispanofalantes A1' or 'A2'). .

Not every course may be offered every semester.

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.

Through the strategic partnership between the Portuguese department of the TUM Language Center and the German and Spanish departments of the Universidade Estadual Paulista (UNESP São Paulo), the TUMtandem Portuguese-German and Portuguese-Spanish online program has been implemented since the beginning of 2020.

This collaboration enables students from both universities to participate in bilingual hybrid and/or online courses (Portuguese-German and Portuguese-Spanish).

A cooperation has also been established and intensified with the University of Lisbon: Since the winter semester 2021/22, TUM students and CLi-FLUL students have been able to attend in online tandems either for Portuguese-German or Portuguese-Spanish.

Since then, hybrid and/or online lectures have been held regularly, in which students from both universities can participate and discuss various topics.
