Actually, the only program that I am aware of at the time being is that of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki in Greece. I have also contacted the Mainz University in Germany, since Greek language is a part of its curriculum but unfortunately. I was informed that I can choose it only as the active language language B and not as the native one, which in this case has to be German.
Therefore I would be deeply grateful if you could give me any further advice of how I can continue my research, if there is any other school that perhaps I am not aware of, or if such a language combination exists due to market request at all. I will soon graduate and obtain a bachelor's degree in translation, with a 3 language combination : French mother tongue , English and Chinese.
Interpretation studies are not available in this language combination in my school Institut libre Marie Haps - and not even in Belgium - so I am considering entering a master in Taiwan, China or France after spending some time in a Chinese-speaking country to develop my Chinese skills. I think studying in Asia would be more interesting for such a language combination, but some people warned me of the diploma problem: apparently, to work for governmental or international organisations, I need a recognized diploma, which could not be the case with a Chinese or a Taiwanese master.
Has anyone who studied in Asia had this type of problem? What's more, has anyone heard about the programme offered at the National Taiwan University? It seems good but it is still pretty new! It can be an advantage to have a few years more life experience.

But there's a lot of competition. Less competition.
I doubt there is much of a market for Chinese as a C only. But I'm not an expert on this combination. Best look at, or ask a question about that combination here interpreting. A B language should be at a level equivalent to an educated native-speaker. A year, more likely 2, would appear to be a reasonable minimum for a language like Chinese. But you compare them here From what you say you may well not be admitted to any interpreting course simply because your languages are not up to the required level. I am 28 years old and come from Germany. I would like to become a conference interpreter with German as A language, English as a B language and Mandarin Chinese as a C language.
I might wanna add Spanish as another C language, however I only have a good basic command of the language up to now. I think it's unlikely that nationality counts. However, the length of time spent in each language environment will be considered and you've spent most time in a Korean-speaking environment.

In Europe schools will receive a student for interview and judge the languages at the interview, regardless of nationality. In some schools it is also possible to be received for interview with A B and to be accepted to the school with B A. It's not assumed that candidates know their best language combination. Unfortunately lot of people in your situation are fluent in two languages, but neither of them is at the high standard required for conference interpreting.
However, an interpreting school should only judge this based on good samples of the potential student's language - written but preferably spoken. Hello, I'm having some problems applying to CI programs due to my language combination - more specifically, regarding my A language. I was born in Korea, moved to India at 9, attended an international school for 3 years, went to a French middle school for another 2, before returning to Korea. Here I've completed my high school education in Korean, and am currently in the last month of my Bachelor's degree in International Relations, conducted entirely in English.
I feel strongly that my A language is English - I debate and speak much more fluently than I do in Korean. So I've started applying to schools in the UK and the States. I am assuming that schools need a criteria to judge a candidate's 'native' language, and that nationality is one. This is why I've elaborated in my statement or purposes about my language combination, about feeling most comfortable using English and so on.
I feel that by insisting on applying with Korean A, I will not perform as competently as I would in English.technologybullets.com/wp-content/map26.php
But it seems that these qualifications don't seem to validate my argument - and I'm worried that even if I do apply to more CI programs, I will be turned down for the same reasons. I'd really like to work with English as A, and with French in the combination as well. What would you suggest I do, if I want to apply with English A? Is it simply impossible, due to technicalities? Thank you in advance, Jiyeah. There may be other schools that I'm not aware of. So if you find any others do please mention them here - I'd be interested to know where they are.
You could also try asking your question on this AIIC-sponsored page Thank you for the great effort exerted in the provision of such valuable information. I would like to train to become a simultaneous and conference interpreter. I understand that I need to train in order to become one. Unfortunately I could not find a school in my country, Egypt. Are there any schools that offer online programs?. If yes, how can I find them?. Thank you once again and looking forward to your assistance.
First of all, you mention the combination French into English. Unfortunately that is not a combination that is viable on the market. It may be that Bengali, Hindi and English are useful for the Indian Parliament, which employs interpreters. K Das. He is an interpreter at the Indian Parliament. He may be able to give you some India-specific suggestions. Most conference interpreters are freelance. So it might sound daunting, but plenty of us make a good living without being staff.
I hope that's useful. It's a tough career to choose, but one I highly recommend. You can also ask professionals for advice on Interpreting. I am interested in going to France for Master in CI in any one of the 3 schools featuring in your list of Interpretation schools in France. My B language would be French but I haven't lived in any francophone country so far. What do u suggest I do? Look for an internship, summer courses, job, or any other legal way of staying in any francophone country for a year? Since its not practical to just fly into a country and say "me voila!
After completion of the course, will I earn enough to say that spending on the training program was "worth it"? Much as I'm interested in this career path, the above are some of the questions which have brought me to a dead end about making a decision and I have less than a year to decide. I would be eternally grateful if all my above questions are answered. Thank you in advance!! Hi Nora, Every now and again students are faced with this problem. However, some schools may try to accommodate you all the same if you show potential. They do this by having a Japanese-speaking teacher without Italian and an Italian speaking teacher without Japanese in the same classroom.
At least one of them will be a conference interpreter, sometimes both. What I suggest you do is look in the Directory for all the schools that teach Japanese at all just enter Japanese in the first menu and nothing in the others. Then contact them and ask if there is any way they can accomodate you, including, but not necessarily only, the method I describe above.
There may be other ways of doing it. The answer to your question might interest other students to so why not also post it here I would repeat my answer there but you'll also get answers from other trainers. My intention is to become an interpreter from Italian to Japanaese but untin now I haven't been able to find a school or istitution, in Italy and in Japan as well, that provides professional training for the languages I am interested in.
I've been looking for a course of interpretation but I'm still in a desperation. So my questions are: - does a training corse for the combination italian. Japanese of languages I chose exist? I would be really grateful if you will give me an advice even if I alredy know it won't be easy. Best regards Eleonora Perna. The answer to your question is one that a lot of students would be interested in so can I ask you to post it here I am a student from India, but I have done all my studies in french, so needless to say that I am fluent in French.
I would consider my native language to be English because it's the language that I have complete control over. I can also speak Hindi, Bengali which is my mother tongue, even though I do not master it perfectly as well as Tamil, and Spanish. I would like to know how to do I prepare myself for the entrance exams I know I still have 3 years and are there any other schools that is better? I would like to move into conference interpreting but am not sure how much demand there is for these European languages.
I'm invited to take the entrance test for the MA in Conference interpreting at the University of Westminster in April ; I would like to prepare for this, is there something more specific I can do than improve my language levels? I'm supposed to take the entrance test for Conference Interpreting in April , I suppose you already took it, I am strongly interested in the contents and , I have some time and would like to prepare myself a little bit, but how? Dear Jessica, The aiic Training Committee does not comment on the quality of a particular training course.
What we do in this site is collect and publish as much information as possible on the different training options for would-be interpreters. We also encourage prospective students to ask as much information as the can get from the training institutions they are interested in, including details on entrance tests and alike. In your case, of course we do not know what exactly went wrong in your admission tests at Geneva, but trying the tests again with fewer languages is perhaps a good idea, especially if one is a B language. Many established colleagues obtained their training in two languages "only"!
You could concentrate on the languages of the countries where you have spent your university years, for example. Students tend to focus a lot on knowing their foreign languages well, but one should not underestimate the role of world knowledge, proficiency in your mother tongue and cognitive skills in securing success at entrance tests. I am an English graduate who has been living in Italy for the last years and would like to do a Masters in conference interpreting this year.
I would prefer to study in Italy, but most of the courses on offer here provide for those who are native speakers of Italian. Would it be worth my while to study in Italy how to interpret into Italian, or better for me to study elsewhere where I can learn how to interpret into English, as that is the language I would be interpreting into professionally?
I would also like to know if I qualify outside of Italy would it be more difficult to find work within Italy? I read the last message with interest as I am in a similar situation. I am English but have been living in Italy for the last 3 years and wish to apply for a masters course in interpreting this year here in Italy, my languages are English a , Italian b and Spanish c.
Most courses here however seem to be directed towards native speakers of Italian, and the modules concentrate on interpreting into Italian. Should I try and get on to one of these courses or would it be more worthwhile looking for a course which is more flexible so I can study how to interpret into English? I am unsure if learning to interpret into Italian will teach me the right skills and help me in my career or if I would be better off looking for a school outside of Italy. Any advice on schools, or general tips would be very much appreciated!
I am getting 32, have plenty of experience for interpretaion. I would appreciate if you could let me know if there is any online Master in CI. I am Italian but have been living abroad for a long time, I am in Singapore at the moment. I am really keen on getting an International Certification which could help me improve my skills and guarantee my professionalism.
Any advice would be much apreciated. However, I have not been able to verify this from non-Chinese media sources, including. I am very interested in progressing to conference interpreting and may be able to start a one-year post-graduate full time university course "Master of Conference Interpreting".

During the first class, I often review the accumulated shortcomings and draw up a work plan with the student. Then, I see again with the student from bottom to bottom the theoretical part of the subjects where he meets difficulties. Once the theory is acquired, I repeat with the student several exercises to apply the theory seen before until he has assimilated the material.
I am an interpreter by training and have decided to provide private language lessons in addition to translation and interpretation. Whoever wants to improve her or his command of English quickly and in a focused way has come to the right place. At the start of a new series of lessons, I first test the level of the student, so that I know where I am and what the way forward is.
I ask my student what his or her ultimate goal is and try to adjust my lessons accordingly.
Does she or he want to have a better command of the grammar rules? Does she or he want to be able to speak more confidently in front of an audience? Does she or he want to communicate with international friends or colleagues? In general, I organize my language lessons according to three pillars: Language proficiency, which mainly consists of vocabulary and expressions and can be considered as the building blocks; Grammar, which includes the rules of the language and is the mortar or binder of the language; and Culture, which includes knowledge about the countries in which a language is spoken and can be seen as the architectural style.
Music Theory helps you understand the undercurrents of all Western music and gives you the ability to analyse, create and enjoy music in more versatile and deep way.

Classes can also be taught using Logic Pro, while enjoying the additional bonus of learning to use one of the most renowned DAW's.

Im offering professional piano lessons for classical music, jazz for beginners, improvisation, popular music as well. I also teach composition and music theory. I studied all of the above at the University. The lessons are at my home in Neukolln, where I have an upright piano. Math can scare some people.
I myself went through a great deal of misunderstanding until I found the method and approach necessary to fully master this dreaded class of students. I offer private lessons to students with specific shortcomings, but also to those with more general needs. My classes are tailor-made for each student.
I teach from the first primary to the retho. My method is simple and effective. As a school coach, my goal is above all to understand where the difficulties come from. Each student is different, so it is important to create an effective and tailor-made work methodology. Over the years, I have developed structured and fun keys for everyone. I learned about all the school programs in Namur, but also gained experience in other countries around the world. The purpose of the first meeting is to get to know the student and determine his current level of mathematics, what are his strengths and weaknesses, and what are the goals to be achieved.
That is why, during the first session I do with the student a thorough work on the methodology to adopt to facilitate the understanding of the concepts and optimize their return. On the basis of this observation, I define with the pupil and his parents an educational strategy notions to be reviewed as a priority, working method, duration and frequency of classes designed to best meet the student's objectives.
Then I adapt and base my course on the student program while customizing it according to the student and his needs. Publication Timeline. Most widely held works about Sylvie Germain.
