Students also explore many aspects of the cultures of China and consider how to apply skills from their major field of study among speakers of the world’s most widely spoken language.
“Christians who have bilingual and Christ-centered hearts can more strategically undertake the Great Commission. Therefore, I especially hope that more students at the University of Northwestern will learn Mandarin.”
