Matthew Perret will offer two sessions of a professional development seminar on "retour" interpretation into English as a B language. 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. The 2-day seminars will be repeated back-to-back to allow more opportunities for training, and to assure a small and compact class size for effective individual feedback.

The course will include simultaneous and consecutive interpreting with native-speaker feedback; “retour” skills enhancement (systematic reformulation, strategic use of intonation); English enhancement 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 seminar will be held in English.
