21 May 2012 ~ Comments Off on 2012 Mock Conferences

2012 Mock Conferences

The 2012 season of NNI mock conferences at Leeds University is now over. Here are just a few comments from some of our attendees…!

“Thankyou for showing me the facilities available for interpreting at the university. Before viewing this conference I felt that interpreting was not something that I would wish to pursue in the future due to the need to immediately translate what is being said. However, I thoroughly enjoyed what I was able to listen to and now feel that it is something that I would wish to explore in the future. I have to say I did feel it would seem to last for a long time but the hour and a half that I did watch went really fast!”

“Thankyou for answering my questions and showing me all the facilities on offer. It has really helped me to decide what I may do in the future.”

“After the mock conference I attended last month, I would like to apply for the Masters course in interpreting and translation.”

NNI / University of Leeds mock conferences will start again at the beginning of 2013. Please get in touch with us if you’d like to come and experience simultaneous conference interpreting!
