Bài khóa - Transcript

Taxi! Behind the sunglasses and uniform is no ordinary cabbie… It's actually Norway's Prime Minster Jens Stoltenberg, working incognito in Oslo. He said taxis were the best place to hear the views of ordinary Norwegians. Passengers were astonished when they discovered who was driving. But, he is unlikely to moonlight again; Stoltenberg hasn't driven for eight years, so his skills are a little rusty.

Bản dịch - Translation

Taxi!

Đằng sau cặp kính râm và bộ quần áo đồng phục không phải là một tài xế taxi bình thường...

Đây chính là Thủ tướng Na Uy, ông Jens Stoltenberg, đang cải trang làm việc tại Oslo.

Ông cho biết taxi là nơi tốt nhất để nghe quan điểm của người dân thường Na Uy.

Hành khách đã rất ngạc nhiên khi họ nhận ra người đang lái xe.

Nhưng ít khả năng ông sẽ lại làm thêm ngoài giờ như thế này; ông Stoltenberg đã không lái xe tám năm nay vì thế kỹ năng của ông hơi kém thành thạo.
