This one week course is aimed at people who can speak two languages fluently and are interested in discovering what interpreting is.


Whatever language you are working from our team of professional lecturers will be able to provide you with constructive feedback on your output in English and give you some tricks of the trade as to how to interpret.

Led by a member of the University teaching staff and supported by audio-visual conference material along with live speeches this workshop will give individuals an introduction to interpreting techniques, consecutive interpreting as well as simultaneous conference interpreting.  This course will also focus on liaison and public speaking interpreting – two skills that are often needed by individuals.

  • People with a C1 level in any language who want to learn the basics of interpreting.
  • Professionals working with languages who sometimes find themselves in situations where they need to interpret
  • Graduates in language or translation degrees wanting to discover more about interpreting
