Kevin Rudd's Beijing University Speech


imron

Recommended Posts

Chinese speaking Australian prime minister Kevin Rudd is currently visiting Beijing, and gave a speech in Mandarin yesterday at Beijing Uni. Does anyone know if there's a full transcript or video/audio of it online? I can only find little bits and pieces of it, but would like to hear the full thing. Here's a short clip of his opening comments.

I guess I should have clarified that I wanted to see the original Chinese and preferably a video or audio version. I've seen that version already, and you'll notice it's missing things like the jokes he was making in his opening remarks etc.

I've been looking at this clip of his as an example of good humor used during a presentation. Am I correct that at the end the joke is: 天不怕,地不怕,只怕老外说中国话。

Also, what would be a more eloquent way to translate this into English. I've translated it as: "We’re not afraid of the sky; we’re not afraid of the ground, the only thing we are afraid of is foreigners speaking Chinese."

Nothing to fear in all heaven and hell, save for the laowai who speaks Chinese well.

This is quite good, too.
