When you speak Mandarin, people listen

Communicate in Mandarin effortlessly. Whether it’s socialising, requesting information, presenting an argument, discussing an issue, explaining a situation, criticising a social ill, or suggesting a solution, our Mandarin Chinese courses are designed to make sure that happens. 

At our Mandarin lessons, students learn Mandarin right to start, understand Chinese grammar correctly from the beginning, tune their pronunciation efficiently, and get adequate listening and speaking exercises they need.

All Mandarin classes are for adults, and are taught by April Zhang, a well-reputed Chinese teacher, who is also the author of two series of Chinese textbooks and many articles on Chinese teaching and learning. Her Mandarin lessons are well targeted, and the entire self-contained curriculum transforms the students from total beginners into fluent Mandarin speakers with substantial cultural knowledge.

Students have options of either taking private Mandarin lessons or joining a group class. Private lessons offer flexibility, and a group class is the right place to meet likeminded and highly motivated people who share the same interests.

How we can help you achieve great success in learning Chinese

The approach to Chinese courses

The final outcome best defines the right approach. That’s how we use our knowledge and insights to define our approach to teaching and learning Chinese.

How adult students achieve great learning results

We are very aware of our students’ age and their process of learning. This is why we are able to help them bring out outstanding results when learning Chinese.

How teachers manage themselves in Chinese classes

A good Chinese teacher has more jobs to do than just teaching. A good Chinese teacher knows how to use different structures to facilitate students to reach their goals.

Learning Chinese is also to learn how to deal with mistakes

When learning Chinese, mistakes are unavoidable. At MSL Master, we understand why mistakes occur, and we know how to help students to address them effectively.

Students’ needs and the vertical depth of learning Chinese

We appreciate the complexity involved in learning Chinese, and our Chinese courses are structured to reflect that complexity, guiding students to perceive the gradual changes in the texture of the Chinese language as they progress.

How students get the most out of their Chinese class time

We encourage students to be active learners during their Chinese classes. We invite students to contribute to their learning and to help their Chinese teacher to better help them.
