Q：My child learned Mandarin using Pinyin but I prefer traditional Chinese. What system do you use to teach?
A：We use the Zhuyin system for preschool and kindergarten age students learning to read in English to avoid any confusion. Zhuyin is the first step in learning Chinese as most of the characters are elements in Chinese words. Students in level 1 to 9 receive homework in Pinyin and are allowed to take tests in Pinyin as well.
