On 12 February SCIT held a virtual conference with the Master’s Conference Interpreting programme of the University of La Laguna, our partner in the EMCI Consortium. Both side were equally enthusiastic to organize the event as this year SCIT has 4 students with Spanish ‘C’ language, and La Laguna also has a student with Russian. This was an occasion for them to practice their interpreting skills with these languages, and get feedback from the native speakers. Human rights were chosen as a topic for the conference. The speeches addressed various aspects of the problem, such as  homelessness, domestic violence, civil rights as mirrored in the national projects in Russia, and the rights of the indigenous populations. We sincerely thank our colleagues from La Laguna for initiating the conference, and look forward to continuing this cooperation in the future within the frame of the cooperation agreement existing between our schools.
