Taiwanese Language Learning

in Play Store, search for Minnan Taiwan. It’s like extremely basic Taiwanese.

You may find some resources here.

That’s not Taiwanese.

But I don’t know of any lessons as it’s not the official language and it’s mainly spoken at home

If you are talking on taigi,

Development of National Languages Act

Article 3

“National language” as referred to in this Act shall mean the natural languages and sign languages used by the different ethnic groups in Taiwan.

第三條 (國家語言之定義)

本法所稱國家語言,指臺灣各固有族群使用之自然語言及臺灣手語。

That law was passed in 2018, and Taigi, Hakka, all Aboriginal languages, as well as Taiwan sign language are all official national languages.

This was originally over there, but since it was very clearly about “Taiwanese”, we moved it here. That was before it became clear that it was about Mandarin “with a Taiwanese accent”.

Good grief is right.

I’m not sure, I’ve heard it might be available through Maryknoll (I think they have a church or something in Taichung).

That being said, if you know POJ reasonably well, you can get a lot out of the text without audio.

Sorry, maybe someone else has a better answer!
