QSI Dongguan also offers Chinese as a Foreign Language. These classes are broken up into four sections: 5-year-olds, 6- to 7-year-olds, 8- to 11-year-olds, Middle School, and Secondary. Each section has a beginner, intermediate, upper intermediate, and advanced level. Students study Chinese four to five class periods a week. As students develop their Chinese writing, reading, and speaking ability, they are encouraged to take the HSK Chinese proficiency tests, as well as AP Chinese.
