Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg spoke in China on Saturday for 20 minutes in Mandarin on his company's mission.

"I just gave my first ever speech in Chinese at Tsinghua University in Beijing — on why you need a strong sense of mission to change the world," Zuckerberg, 31, said in a Facebook post after his speech.

In 2012, he married Priscilla Chan, who is Chinese-American. They married two years after Zuckerberg began studying Mandarin, The Daily Mail reports.

"This was also my first real speech in any language sharing how I started thinking about Facebook's mission, what has kept me going through challenging times and what our mission means now looking ahead for our community of 1.5 billion people," Zuckerberg said in the post.

He joined the board of Tsinghua University's School of Economics last year, the Mail reports.

In his speech, he praised the university as a "center of innovation."
