Training of Trainers workshop on Speech making

Budapest, February 8-9, 2018

The EMCI’s work program for the academic year 2017-18 included the organisation of a workshop for less experienced trainers of interpreters on the subject of speech making. The workshop was organised by ELTE University, Budapest, and it was co-moderated by Ms. Catherine Pearson (DG SCIC), Ms. Alessandra Riccardi (Università degli Studi di Trieste), Ms. Márta Seresi and Ms. Ildikó Horváth (ELTE). Representatives from thirteen Universities and PAMCIT attended the workshop.

Given the interactive nature of the workshops, it was impossible to video-record the event. The documents that guided the workshops are made available for future reference (courtesy of the moderators, whom we thank wholeheartedly).
