State Exam Preparation Course

Few spots left. Don’t miss the chance to practice intensively before you sit for the exam. We will practice consecutive, simultaneous and sight interpretation with new materials for 10 days so you are better prepared for the exam. Plenty of practice in class and extra passages for homework.

Next course is scheduled for Oct 23 to Nov. 3, 2017, from 7:30 to 9:00 p.m. EST.  If you can’t attend the live session, there is always the option of using the recorded webinar which is sent next day to all participants.

All webinars are held in English with simultaneous, consecutive and sight passages to be interpreted into different foreign languages. For the Spanish <> English pair, extra materials will be provided to participants.

Note: At the moment, Spanish is the only foreign language for which I have developed extra materials as this is my language pair.

Next practice course starts Oct. 23

We just completed two practice courses, Federal Exam Preparation and State Exam Preparation. Next one is scheduled for Oct 23 to Nov. 3, 2017, from   7:30 to 9:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. We decided to do it half hour later than the previous one to give more time for people in other time zones to attend live. If you can’t attend the live session, there is always the option of using the recorded webinar which is sent next day to all participants.

All webinars are held in English with simultaneous, consecutive and sight passages to be interpreted into different foreign languages. For the Spanish <> English pair, extra materials will be provided to participants.

Note: At the moment, Spanish is the only foreign language for which I have developed extra materials as this is my language pair.
