  1. Great presentations (Both Part1 and Part 2). Very comprehensive and explicative. This is a fascinating field with many nuances and challenges for the interpreter. This type of specialized training is a wonderful tool in our hands to do a job well done and provide the service that our clients deserve. Thank you for the opportunity to sharpen our knowledge in this field!
