Blank e-mail – Error

My apologies to all who received a blank e-mail. It was sent in error from my MailChimp account. I had an automated feature set up to send on Friday but had not finished preparing the campaign and a blank was sent in error.

I will be sending real news shortly. My apologies to all.  I definitely understand those who unsubscribed. Hope you will get to read about my courses in the future. If interested send me a request to subscribe to be added to the list.


All languages, not just Spanish!

This is a pilot program created with the goal of expanding the Court Interpreter Training Online Program to prospective court interpreters of Languages Other Than Spanish. Materials were developed in Spanish and adapted to be used to train speakers of other languages to help them become court interpreters.


We understand much is to be done to attain the level of proficiency required and resources are not so readily available. We appreciate suggestions and contributions to our effort to expand this program to LOTS.


In the pilot phase of the program, we will be adapting the materials as we receive collaboration and input from students and colleagues who work in the various languages. If you would like to be part of this project and you think you can be of assistance in training others, we want to hear from you.
