Monkey See Monkey Do

I have been training at a dojo in southern Taiwan for the past 8 months. While I can get around here using Chinese (American) well enough, at the dojo, they speak Taiwanese( More difficult to learn then chinese). I have been getting though the basics using the monkey see monkey do method, but I am starting to come to the point where I feel more explanation is needed. (they don't use any Japanese language in class). Am I wrong? Can one get by just by sight learning?
