Interpreters with a strong English C (passive knowledge) who plan to upgrade their English to a B will also be welcome to join.

Together with a native English interpreting trainer and in supportive environment, you will work on producing clear, easily comprehensible English interpretations in both simultaneous and consecutive mode.
