August, the month of the Edinburgh festival, the time of the year where our beautiful city becomes for a few weeks the centre of the cultural world. If you have ever dreamt about coming over to have a look for yourself but never found the right excuse. We have just found you one!
Heriot Watt University, and in particular the School of Management and languages, will be running an Interpreting Summer School at the same time of the festival. You could therefore work on your English and/or your interpreting skills during the day while enjoying all the fun of the festival in the evening. Talk about killing two birds with one stone!
But, what exactly will the Summer school involve? Well, we are offering a two week course, the first week being focused on English Language and Culture, and the second one on Interpreting skills. This makes it the perfect combination to improve your English as well as your Interpreting, ideal for anyone who wants to make English their B language.
If you are a professional and haven’t practiced English in a while, are studying interpreting and feel like you need a nudge in the right direction, this is the course for you.
To stay in the loop of what’s going on during this Summer School you can also like us on Facebook.
So, you see, we just found you the perfect destination for the summer holidays!
