Ludwig-Maximilians Universität Course Information. A few faculties don't offer courses in English. Through the link just provided you'll be able to determine which do and which don't.
The LMU Exchange Office could ask, in the case of *small* classes, that LMU professors provide instruction in English (rather than in German) and allow our students to turn in assignments and write exams in English. If there is a course (or few) that you'd really like to take but it's only offered in German and you don't speak German, or don't speak it well enough, you can ask Michal Guzowski (via firstname.lastname@example.org) to ask the LMU Exchange Office on your behalf if the accommodations just described could be provided for you.
