IN THIS LESSON
ID: 0260 Upper Intermediate
Between 1937-39, over 20,000 Jewish families migrated to Shanghai. Today, north of the city center, there is still a flourishing Jewish community. China is also seeing more and more Christian churches popping up. So how does the average Chinese feel about others who pray to a different higher being? We’ll learn all about it in Mandarin Chinese, in a podcast on the subject.

No, I’m not at all. Yesterday was my first time in a church, and it was my first time attending a formal Sunday service. It was a really special experience. Rather than saying I was participating in a kind of religious activity, it was more like receiving a kind of religious cultural experience.
