MSL Master & Teacher April Zhang
MSL Master is a Hong Kong based education solution company with a focus on teaching and learning Mandarin as a second language, developing materials and methodologies for non-Chinese speakers.
April is the founder of MSL Master. Her goal is to transform the old fashioned, reading and writing based Chinese curriculum, into a communication based Chinese curriculum which is stimulating and rewarding. Read more here.
Everything started with April’s poor English. Like most people, she started learning English when she was ten years old. However, eight years later, she still could not have a decent enough conversation with a native-English speaker. That was not the best learning experience, and April would never want that to happen to her students.
Today, after having created a spectrum of Chinese learning materials and helped many students achieve outstanding results, she continues to come up with new and interesting ways that help people learn Chinese through creative, imaginative and impactful activities.
During her early career, April taught English to Chinese speakers, and later turned her focus to teaching Mandarin to non-Chinese speakers. Her experience as a bilingual teacher has given her insight on the process of learning and how cultural differences affect learning outcomes.
April received her BS in Mechanical Engineering, and her MA in Cultural and Literary Studies.
