International stardom

Bachelor of Arts (Language and Linguistics)

From Ipswich school boy to Chinese talk show host and internet pop sensation, the journey to international stardom is a dream come true for Griffith University languages graduate Harry Harding.

Harry has been working as a journalist and presenter at GDTV World channel in Guangzhou, South China for the past three years, where he hosts a talk show, a travel show and a documentary program.

"While the talk show is in English, the other two are in Mandarin so they really test my language skills," he said.

"Fortunately my Mandarin studies at Griffith’s School of Languages and Linguistics gave me an excellent grounding in the language.

"Griffith gave me the language and communications skills to be able to tackle this enormous challenge, and communicate effectively with guests and co-workers from all different backgrounds and cultures."
