New goverment regulation to study chinese

I heard the rumor, that starting this July students need to enroll at least 12 hours weekly to be recognised as a full time student and therefor be eligable for Visa-extensions and student-ARC’s.
Moreover starting from September this will be even extended to 15 hours weekly.
If that is true, 3 hours per day seems to be a lot, I personaly hope this will prevent many illegal english teachers to enroll turning down the studying progress.
Can anybody confirm that ??

Another new law making it harder for foreigners to stay in Taiwan. Thanks, CSB. :unamused:
