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 Zhang is the founder of MSL Master. She wrote two series of Chinese textbooks, which completely broke the rules of traditional Chinese teaching and learning. Also, she has presented papers in many conferences and attended book fairs worldwide.
Everything started with April’s poor English. During her second year in the university, i.e. after learning English for more than eight years, April still could not have a decent enough conversation with a native-English speaker. She could manage reading and writing English texts all right, but her listening and speaking ability was terrible. That is not the best experience in learning a second language, and she would never want that to happen to her students. Now she is considered fluent in English and she believes that learning a second language should be rewarding, stimulating and fun.
During her early career, she 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. Mandarin Express series and Chinese Reading and Writing series are the outcomes of over a decade development, which fully integrate targeted exercises with functionality, structures, and cultural interests.
April received her Bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering, and her Master's degree in Cultural and Literary Studies.
