Impromptu presentation

Today, in a presentation class, I had an "impromptu presentation". This is one type of presentation. You go to a stage, and then the professor gives you a question. You have to make a 30 seconds presentation answering the question as soon as possible. This class consists of about 20 students.

I tried to raise my hand as soon as possible, but the first native speaker was so good. I hesitated to do just after him. Then, I couldn't raise my hand again and again. Finally, almost native speakers finished their presentation, and the rest of students were only international students. Absolute silence, silence, silence...

Interestingly, one common understanding was formed. That is "the order of a speaker is based on student's English skill." Naturally, an Indian student raised his hand because everybody was looking at him. Next, a Chinese student, he had been working in Canada for 7 years. Next, a Korean girl, she lived in the US for about 10 years when she was youth. I realized that the next was me from the context though there are still some international students in the pool.



I went to the stage. I hoped the question was easy, but not. The question is "If you were Bush, what would you do against the evil countries (which Bush says) like North Korea and Iraq?"

I tried to say the following story. "I (Bush) should spend money into NPOs and NGOs which try to educate Korean and Iraqi people because people in those countries don't know much about the world except for their countries because of the political tyranny government.”

I don't know whether I was able to tell it correctly, but I know the warm shower of applause now. That's enough.

"... and if i were a person from iraq or north korea given the chance to educate Bush, I would teach Bush about the complex political, religious, and sociological reasons behind my complex country so that he wouldn't need to blatantly attack us and treat us like some barbarians."

と足して、笑いも取ったりして。
ブッシュ派の人には敵視されるけど。

俺はあと一年だなー。あっという間に終わりそうだよ。

ジョージ!元気?即興で笑いをとれるコメントをクラス内で発言することが当面の目的かな。
ピッツバーグはすっかり寒くなってきて、西海岸の写真たちがまぶしいよ。俺はまだはじまったばっかりだけど、もうだいぶ長くこっちにいる気がする。お互い、毎日大切に過ごしていこう。
