On 1 March SCIT students met Kirill Kazakov, an experienced interpreter, former MFA staff interpreter1 and SCIT graduate. Kirill had a full-fledged class with the students: he shared some useful interpretation strategies, gave examples of dealing with difficulties in interpretation, gave exercises to practice interpreting from English into Russian and retour.   On the whole, it was a productive and efficient meeting, and we thank Kirill for making it happen.
