Austin and Ashley Soon

Chinese Hackers on TikTok

As huge believers in edutainment, Austin and Ashley started Chinese Hackers to provide both motivation and methods to “hack” the Mandarin learning curve.

They started with sharing Chinese tips, hacks, skits and street interviews through TikTok and other social media platforms. In doing so, they hope that more people can experience greater exposure to Mandarin.  Since then, they have garnered more than 100,000 followers on their social media platforms.
