Taiwanese DeCal Interns

Are you already familiar with the Taiwanese language? Apply to be an intern! Speak with the facilitators for more information.

How to Enroll:

Show up on the first day of class for enrollment information! If there are more students than our class capacity, we will enroll students according to the application given out on the first few days of class.

- If you are very sure you want to take the class, please bring $15 for the reader on the first days of class in order to receive a combination of CEC/CCN. The readers, however, will not be passed out until the third or fourth week, after we have confirmed the number of people enrolling. For students who would like to enroll in the Taiwanese DeCal after the deadline to "add course without a fee", readers will go up to $15 each since we will need to order extra readers. 

Please note that the reader fee is not refundable. We apologize for the inconvenience!
