Following successful short courses for interpreters with English B in the past three summers, Christine Adams and Zoë Hewetson are proposing to run two more in 2017. There is a felt need for opportunities for colleagues to work on their B in a practical, supportive environ- ment. The courses will run August 21-26 and August 28-September 2, 2017 and will include:

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

We will be running an Arabic A group and a German A group the first week, August 21-26, and a French A group and an Italian A group the second week, August 28-September 2. We now have a waiting list for the French A group, but we still have a few places left for Arabic, German and Italian.

Please send us both an email if you would be interested in attending, giving your A language. The courses will take place in central London and the fees are £1250.00 (which will cover tuition, not accommodation).

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