Short Courses for conference interpreters with English B Permalink

Christine Adams and Zoë Hewetson have run successful courses for working interpreters with English B for the past six years and are proposing to run more in 2020.  We provide opportunities for colleagues to work on their B in a practical, supportive environment.
This year’s courses will run from August 24-28, 2020.  They will include: 

  • simultaneous interpreting,
  • consecutive (if requested),
  • tailored feedback from English A course tutors,
  • voice coaching,
  • English enhancement,
  • talks and debates on topical issues,
  • participant speech preparation and delivery.

They will take place in central London.  We could accommodate two different A language groups in that week, with a minimum number of six per group and a maximum of ten.
Please send us an email if you are interested in attending, giving your A language.  We would like to have expressions of interest by March 13, 2020 so we can establish the A language groups. The fees are £1250.00 (covering tuition, not accommodation). 

Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
