The professor provides information not covered in the textbook (and upon which you will be tested). You have difficulty hearing. etc. None of these really apply at MTC, at least based on my experience so far: As compared to a university lecture, the MTC teacher's pace is markedly slower. You will not be taking notes periodically, not constantly. Since it's a language instruction class, there is a lot of repetition. You don't have to worry about missing anything important. 98% of the classroom instruction will be focused on the materials in your textbook, and these are the only topics upon which you are tested. The rooms are small, so you shouldn't have any trouble hearing. etc. I think OneEye's suggestion is a good one. Personally, I don't see much value in recording the class, and I can't imagine spending extra time reviewing the recordings (three hours worth each day for the intensive class) - that's time I could spend studying, practicing with a language exchange partner, or even just watching Taiwanese TV.
