1st English Retour Interpreting Summer School held online

(14 to 16 July 2023)  

Congratulations to Dr Eloisa Monteoliva and the academic team (Kate Ferguson, Juliette Rutherford, Tania Aitken, Sarah Goulding) for the huge success of the first online version of the English Retour Interpreting Summer School (14 to 16 July 2023).   

The course was attended by 12 professional interpreters with the following languages: Arabic, Basque, Czech, French, German, and Spanish all seeking to improve their retour into English.   

The participants enjoyed the interaction with other professionals and the opportunity to receive detailed feedback on their English language performance, to help take their interpreting skills one step further. 

Their feedback on the training was very positive overall, showing an appetite for further similar training. As one participant put it:   

“Great job everyone! Please keep organizing these courses, they are very much needed. I’ve been looking for such a course in the last 4 years! And I would gladly take another one in the near future.”
