Biography

Alexander (Alex) Tang is a recent graduate from Seattle University concentrating his studies with a Masters of Arts in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) and is currently working on his second Master’s degree in Adult Education and Training specializing in Human Resources Development. Born and raised in Portland, Oregon to a father from Hong Kong and a mother of Chinese heritage from Laos, Alex grew up speaking Cantonese and Hakka at home with his parents, and soon eventually learned Mandarin as a lingua franca through a Taiwanese language immersion school. He soon eventually picked up Japanese in high school and continued his studies at the University of Washington pursuing a Bachelors of Arts in Japanese, Korean, and Early Childhood and Family Studies, as well as a Bachelors of Science in Psychology.

As a passionate and motivated second language educator, Alex hopes to pursue doctoral studies at New York University’s Bilingual Education program. He is currently conducting research in the acquisition of multiword units of Chinese ESL adult learners. Alex has classroom experience teaching primary and secondary school students who have recently immigrated from China, as well as Chinese-Americans in a nonprofit organization located in Chinatown. Alex’s desire is to garner more attention to teaching Cantonese as a second, foreign, additional, or other language in the United States and hopes that public schools and universities will follow suit. As a heritage learner and speaker of Cantonese, Alex is determined to spread the word of Cantonese language learning in the Greater Seattle Area.
