Luo Wangshu / China Daily
Beijing Foreign Studies University was approved by the Ministry of Education in 2005 to start its Icelandic program three years later. It is still the only university in China that has such a program. Zhang Yuchong, 23, who is also studying Icelandic, said he is worried about his career prospects after graduation. "But I don't regret studying Icelandic as my major," he said. "It has opened a door for me to a unique culture, and I love it."
