In addition, students can also learn the manners& spirit of OP for their work as well as experiencing impromptu interpretation. This is a valuable opportunity for senior students before graduation.”
One of the students served an interpreter also said “at that moment, I need to memorize the information what the speaker said and immediately translated it into another language. What’s more, I also need to change the difficult words into an easy way for the listeners to understand. Only when I stood up, holding on the microphone and facing the audience, I really knew that to be a professional interpreter needs to practice a lot and improve the skills of languages.”
