TLI is really flexible in these matters. I just did a 2-week course with them last month in Kaohsiung, but I've done similar things at the Taipei centers over the years as well. The director in Kaohsiung told me that TLI is taking personalization and flexibility for working people as its direction to differentiate itself from the other language centers.

Is that for 1 on 1 or for standard classes?
I'll go check it out though my teachers at Shi-Da gave me really bad comments on TLI :D
Thanks

TLI's OK. The organization is a bit creepy. Lots of old WSR battleaxes running around. But by Taiwan standards for language teaching, they're not bad. I'd hate to work for them though. That may be the source of your Shi-Da teacher's bad feelings since there is quite a bit of overlap.

I know a couple of really great private teachers. PM if interested.

I'll bet Pepsi execs don't recommend Coke either, though. And wouldn't like it much if Pepsi insisted on selling only 2-liter bottles while Coke would sell you any size bottle or can you wanted. :D

Are there any schools and classes that have short term 4-week classes that would mostly fit into a 30-day visa period?

Or is the only option 1-on-1 with a private teacher?

Group classes are hard to organize for such short periods.

My company offers one on one classes with an experienced Chinese teacher at our office in Taichung or via Skype for $350 NT / hour. PM if you're interested.

If we're advertising now, I offer one-on-one classes with me, an experienced Comprehensible Input-based teacher. They cost more, but the effects are quite different from traditional classes.
