New students must register in person, as we need to make sure you have arrived in Taiwan. You will also have to take the placement test upon registration for us to assign you to a class that best suits your level.
MTC recommends students arrive 1-2 weeks before the class starts, so as to register on the scheduled new student registration dates, and to familiarize themselves with the different culture and environment.
