Zuckerberg speaks Mandarin Chinese during a 30 minute Q & A session with students at Tsinghua University in Beijing. Zuckerberg is a newly appointed member of the University’s School of Economics and Management. Zuckerberg talks about talking about innovation in China, Facebook’s presence in the country. He says Facebook is already in China, helping Chinese companies increase foreign buyers by using Facebook ads and running tourism ads for two Chinese cities, and says it wants to expand there. He also says he learned Chinese to ask his wife Priscilla Chan’s grandmother, who only speaks Chinese, for her hand in marriage.
Priscilla and I decided to get married, so I told her grandmother in Chinese, and she was very surprised.
