#211 L-Week 19(5) エレン・デジェネレス スピーチ(4)


#207~#209の内容を一気に流します。「エレンの部屋」で米国人なら誰でも知ってる、エレン・デジェネレス の2009年テュレーン大学での commencement speech です。

彼女はコメディアンで喋りがとても速いのですが、活舌がとてもよい為、聞きやすいと思います。ですので、是非 ①音理解、②意味理解に頑張って見て下さい。

  • When I was asked to make the commencement speech I immediately said yes.
  • Then I went to look up what commencement meant which would have been easy if I had a dictionary.
  • But most of the books in our house or Portia’s and they’re all written in Australian.
  • So I had to break the word down myself to find out the meaning; commencement common and cement.
  • I didn’t go to college at all any college.
  • And I’m not saying you wasted your time or money but look at me I’m a huge celebrity.
  • When I finished school I was completely lost. I really I had no ambition.
  • I didn’t know what I wanted to do. I did everything from I shucked oysters I was a hostess I was a bartender I was a waitress I painted houses.
  • My point is that by the time I was your age I really thought I knew who I was.
  • But I had no idea. Like for example when I was your age I was dating men.
  • So what I’m saying is when you’re older most of you will be gay.
  • Anyway I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life and the way I ended up on this path was from a very tragic event.
  • I was maybe 19 and my girlfriend at the time was killed in a car accident
