The approach to Chinese courses

MSL Master's approach to Chinese courses is represented by three keywords, “Mandarin”, “second”, and “master”. 

How adult students achieve great learning results

Adult students no longer need a report card to grade their performance. What they need is a helping hand from a good Chinese teacher.

How teachers manage themselves in Chinese classes

To teach Chinese effectively and engagingly to non-Chinese speakers, April Zhang has realised that she must first of all manage herself well.

How students get the most out of their Chinese class time

Students are not passive in Chinese classes. They can make significant changes on how they are taught and help Chinese teachers to help them.

Students’ needs and the vertical depth of learning Chinese

Learning Chinese at different levels is, in its essence, to learn the Chinese language whose texture gradually changes.

Learning Chinese is also to learn how to deal with mistakes

Learn about some common mistakes nearly all students make when they are learning Chinese, and what is the best way to address these mistakes.

Private Lessons

Private Mandarin lessons offer students flexible schedule and the teacher's undivided attention. Students make progress at their own pace, and it is possible to make huge progress in a short time.
