导读:知名少年组合TFBoys成员王源登上联合国讲台并发表英文演讲,向世界发出了中国青年的声音。
Making a speech at the United Nations in front of 500 people from around the world isn’t an easy task. And doing it in a foreign language is even harder. But Wang Yuan, 16, a member of Chinese boy band TFBoys, was up for the challenge.
在联合国会场上面对500名来自世界各地的听众做演讲并非易事。而用一门外语演讲更是难上加难。但中国少年偶像组合TFBoys的成员之一、年仅16岁的王源却勇敢地迎接了这一挑战。

The speech was on Jan 31. While most Chinese teenagers were still enjoying the rest of their holidays, Wang had already spent days writing the speech and polishing (润色) it with the help of professionals (专业人士). He used all the free time he had – in his bedroom, in cars and on flights – trying to remember it and read it with more confidence.
演讲的时间为1月31日。当大部分中国青少年还在放假,王源却已经在专业人士的帮助下,花了几天时间来撰写演讲稿并进行润色。他用上了所有的空余时间 —— 房间里、汽车上、飞机上 —— 他都在记演讲内容,练习更加自信地把它朗读出来。

The event Wang took part in was the Sixth United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) Youth Forum (论坛). It aimed to “eradicate (消除) poverty and promote prosperity (促进繁荣) across the world,” giving speakers such as Wang the chance to work with policy-makers directly.
王源此次参加的是联合国经社理事会(ECOSOC)第六届青年论坛。该论坛旨在“全世界范围内消除贫困、促进繁荣”,也给予了像王源这样的发言者直接和决策者共事的机会。

The subject of Wang’s speech was quality education. It’s a topic that few of his peers (同龄人) in China can talk about comfortably even in Chinese, not to mention English. In fact, it’s allowed in the forum to make a speech in Chinese. But Wang chose English anyway.
王源演讲的主题是优质教育。在他的同龄人中,就算用中文几乎也没有多少人能把这一主题讲好,更别提用英文了。事实上,该论坛允许用中文进行演讲。但王源却选择了英文。

“I made the choice because most people in the room are more familiar with English,” he said. “I was also worried interpreters (口译员) wouldn’t translate my words as quickly and precisely (准确地).”
“我做出这一选择,是因为会场上大部分人对英文更加熟悉,”他表示。“我也担心口译员不能快速准确地翻译出我的话。”

Although the speech wasn’t perfect, it was good enough for a 16-year-old. But for Wang, it was not a sense of relief (如释重负) that he felt after the nervous three minutes. Instead, he went through the entire speech in his mind to recall whether he had made a mistake or where he could have done better. “Only by then, I had the feeling of ‘mission (任务) complete’,”he said.
尽管王源的演讲并不完美,但对一个16岁的少年来说,已经足够好了。然而,王源在紧张的三分钟过后并未感到如释重负,他在脑海中回顾了整场演讲,思索着自己是否犯错或是有什么可以做的更好的地方。“在那之后,我才觉得‘任务完成了’,”他说道。

Speaking at the UN wasn’t easy, but Wang said it was worth it considering what he’d learned from the experience. There may be little he can do personally, but the message he’s sending to his fans does a lot more – his post on Sina Weibo about the speech was shared more than 10 million times.
在联合国发言并不容易,但王源表示,就他在这次经历中学到的而言,这一切十分值得。他个人能做的或许不多,但他向粉丝们传递的信息却大有作用 —— 关于这场演讲他发送的新浪微博被转发超过1千万次。

The experience also changed the singer’s opinion on English learning.“After the speech, I started to pay more attention to my pronunciation and oral expression (口头表达),” he said. “Just burying myself in paper exercises is far from enough.”
这次的经历也改变了这位歌手对学英语的想法。“演讲过后,我开始更加注意我的发音和口语表达,”他说道。“仅仅埋头写练习题还远远不够。”
