    to an audience

    On Wednesday, the Prime Minister, Kevin Rudd, made a speech to an audience at Peking University, China's pre-eminent tertiary institution.
    Hi! Is it okay for me to remove"to an audience"? I think it is impossible for Rudd made a speech to himself? Or it is better to remain it?

    Re: to an audience

    Thank you, Soup. I found the original sentence in an Australia-based website. And the author is a professor of an Australia University. I remember I wrote the similar sentence " he made a speech at ...". But I omitted "an audience".
