On 1 November SCIT held the “Introduction into Simultaneous’ conference. As the tradition goes, the trainers carefully selected a painting to serve as visual aid and practiced describing the picture with the students in all working languages to remove the fears of missing information in interpreting.  The preparatory stage over, the students took places in the booths and pacticed simultaneous interpretation. Well begun – half done! From now on they have to work diligently to master simultaneous interpreting, and we hope they will become good professionals in sim!
