(To be confirmed)

Matthew Perret will offer two sessions of a professional development seminar on "retour" interpretation into English as a B language, with session 1: 7-8 August 2018 and a repeat session (session 2): 9-10 August 2018. For registration links, please go to bottom of the page.

The course is aimed at interpreters with professional experience working into non-native English or with a high standard of English and intending to add active EN to their combination. Two identical 2-day seminars will be offered (same content, different participants) to allow more opportunities for training, and to assure a smaller class size for effective feedback. 

The course will include simultaneous and consecutive interpreting with native-speaker feedback; “retour” skills enhancement (deverbalisation, reformulation, effective use of intonation); English enhancement, public speaking and role-playing exercises.

Matthew Perret is a freelance interpreter based in Berlin (EN A, ES B, IT FR PT C) with 20 years of experience working for the European Commission and Parliament as well as with the G20, UK government, and IMF/ World Bank group.

He is also a well-known trainer, teaching on the interpreting courses of the Universities of Zurich and Shanghai, and regularly involved in training both staff and freelance interpreters into English "B" at international organisations.

Matthew also contributes to online training initiatives such as ScicTrain, and Lourdes de Rioja's A Word in Your Ear, and is Project Task Leader for Orcit.

Participants will receive a Certificate of Attendance from AIIC for each individual seminar attended.

This workshop will be held in English.
