Seasonal Program

New Student Registration
New students must register in person, as we need to make sure you have arrived in Taiwan. You will have to take the placement test in order for us to assign you to a class that best suits your level.
MTC recommends that students arrive 1 to 2 weeks before the class starts to familiarize themselves with different culture and environment.
