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 starting on 27February. Since our classroom was too small to really accommodate our lecture courses, we have adapted Basics of Interpreting and Introduction to Community Interpreting to the Zoom environment for the fall term.

Our objective is complete the Community Interpreting series, including the certificate exams, by mid June 2021. Our three-course Health Care Enhancement will run for seven Saturdays from 20 June to 1 August, two classes per day.

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.
