Learn how to put your languages to work

If you are fluent in English and another language, why not make your skills available to hospitals, the courts, Immigration and anywhere the need for accurate multilingual communication exists? The skills you learn at the Vancouver School of Interpreting can help you attain the accreditation and professional certification required for many interpreting jobs.

It has long been our intention to deliver all or nearly all the bilingual components online. We successfully ran the three community interpreting tutorials on Zoom and will be running them again on Saturdays in December and January.

Since our classroom is too small to accommodate our lecture courses, we are adapting Basics of Interpreting and Introduction to Community Interpreting to the Zoom environment for the fall term. Basics of Interpreting started on 26 September and Introduction to Community should start about 31 November – all day each Saturday in two sessions.

Our objective is complete the Community Interpreting series, including the certificate exams, by the end of February 2021.

Worth noting... since this cycle of courses and exams will be entirely online, this is the first time our mainline courses will be accessible by students outside of Metro Vancouver.
