President Park speaking in Chinese

Tuesday, July 16, 2013

Here's what it sounds like - not too bad, yet fairly stilted. I get the impression she has a fairly good command of regulac (non-speech) Mandarin and is a bit nervous 1) using less familiar vocabulary, and 2) talking in front of an audience. Even for a president who is also the daughter of another president, talking in a half-fluent foreign language can be intimidating.
