Hungarian Student Makes Debut as English News Anchor at NCKU

TAINAN, Taiwan --(Business Wire)--

A Hungarian student received a warm welcome from the News Center of the National Cheng Kung University (NCKU) recently.

Currently studying at the NCKU Department of Chinese Literature, Gabor Kovacs is a news anchor and has already recorded his debut student news video on April 28.

Kovacs said that he has told his friends and family about his new role at NCKU News Center, and hopes his debut news video can be viewed all over the world on the Internet.

NCKU Department of Foreign Language and Literature Assistant Professor Dr. Carolyn Scott, advisor to the NCKU English news anchor team, said that Kovacs is well-prepared and his debut in broadcasting news is refreshing.

"Having the opportunity to work as a student anchor is a unusual yet memorable life experience," said Kovacs. "Besides, using English to report NCKU news is excellent as it enables the world to know more about NCKU and Taiwan."

At the beginning, Kovacs has some doubts over his ability to take up the role of English news anchor at NCKU News Center.

Therefore, he spent time reading NCKU news as well as consulting experienced news anchor for learning tips beforehand. He even practiced pronunciation, how to have a good stage presence, and writing news scripts while receiving guidance and useful tips from Prof. Scott.

Kovacs noted that Prof. Scott's guidance helped calm him down throughout his first ever news video recording session and hoped his performance will improve a great deal in the future.

Kovacs came to Taiwan five years ago, and is proficient in his mother language Hungarian, English, Mandarin Chinese and German.

According to Kovacs, he watched Jackie Chan's movies at the age of 8 and was deeply attracted by Kung Fu and oriental culture ever since. Therefore, he started learning Chinese in Hungary when he was 10.

He stayed in Mainland China one year before arriving in Taiwan, and enrolled in the Master's degree program in Chinese Literature on the recommendation of his friend, having known that NCKU is one of the top two universities in Taiwan.

Currently, Kovacs is studying Taoism as part of his degree and hopes to work in Taiwan in the future.
