第301話 英語のスピーチ

 ノーベル賞の授与式で益川さんが(本当はある程度英語は話せるそうだが)日本語でスピーチをしたことが話題になっていた。私もこの選択は間違ってはいないと思う。スピーチは自分の思いをブチまけることだとすれば、慣れない外国語ではうまくいかないのも当然だ。しかも元来日本人はスピーチは苦手だ。自国語で行う国会の所信表明でさえも原稿の棒読みだ。アメリカの大統領が一般教書演説を原稿を見ながら話す姿など見たことがない。

 以前、セブの日系企業の祝賀会に出席した時に、日本人の社長のスピーチを聞いていて、アレッと思った。周囲の人達もオヤッという表情だ。推測するに1行飛ばしてしまったのではないかと思われた。そのようなことに気付かぬ当の社長はひたすら英文原稿を凝視して読んでいる。こうなると、しら~とした雰囲気が漂うのは避けられない。

 自分も然程英語は達者ではないので、スピーチは嫌だった。3~4センテンスで済む開会の挨拶くらいは問題なかったが、1分以上喋ろうとするとやはり箇条書きのメモは必要だったし、言いたいことを言うというより、英語で言える内容を喋った、というところが本音だ。そういう意味でも、話題の益川さんの選択には賛成だ。
