As part of a summer series of lunchtime conversations in eight languages, international visitors from Shanghai Jiao Tong University on Wednesday helped UCLA students with their Mandarin Chinese in the Rolfe Courtyard. About 90 people attended. The U.S. students are enrolled in intensive courses organized by the Center for World Languages and Summer Sessions.
