Hello Forumosa-ers. There are some past posts on the topic but I'm looking for contemporary information and opinions. I'm job-hunting in Taipei (for non-teaching, and thus seemingly non-available, positions) and so would like to enrol in an evening beginner's Mandarin class, in the overly optimistic hope that I find my days filled with toil.
There don't seem to be a heap of options here. I've read a bunch of bad things about NTNU MTC. Is it really that shit? People keep going on about how expensive it is, but it seems like the best bang for buck, at least per hour. Then there's TMI, but they won't respond to my prodding for a quote and, looking at their hours, it looks like they wouldn't be able to offer a visa - which, being unemployed, is a desirable thing.
Are there any other options? Anybody got recent experience of MTC?
I'm a total beginner and just want to get some foundations in place.
