Wei Dongyi is an assistant professor at Peking University who recently appeared in an interview that went viral.
South China Morning Post writes:
His high school teacher Zhang Yonghua told Shandong Business News that Wei once refused an offer from Harvard to study as a Ph.D. candidate even after the American university said he did not need to take an English entrance test and that they would provide an interpreter.
(A similar claim, in Simplified Chinese: Baidu Baike)
This seems suspect because I cannot understand how Wei can study at Harvard if he cannot understand what the teachers are saying.
Will Harvard enroll someone who is not fluent in English?
