The Chinese language education entails two options: Standard Chinese and Ma LiPing Chinese. Parents can choose either one of these professional programs according to the preference and needs of their children.
Standard Chinese (Biao Zhun Zhong Wen, 标准中文) is a complete learning program that begins the child’s Chinese education with Ping Yin. QD Academy utilizes the Standard Chinese books published by the China People’s Educational Press in Beijing. The development of these textbooks focused on the Children of Chinese overseas students, that of overseas Chinese and learners of Chinese from non-Chinese backgrounds. The curriculum is divided into nine levels, with each level having three textbooks, consisting of a regular textbook, an exercise workbook, etc. The books teach vocabulary words, grammar, speaking, listening, writing, and critical reading of the language. This option hits all the points of the Chinese language and ensures a well-rounded language education.
Ma Liping Chinese curriculum starts the learning of the language with Chinese characters, Han Zi, instead of the regulation Ping Yin. This "Direct Character Recognition" methodology is a relatively new brainchild of seasoned Chinese language educators in America. The program jumps right into Chinese characters and focuses more on speaking, listening, reading, and the understanding of the language, than on writing.
