Public Speaking. Trainer : Karen Twidle. Masters in Conference Interpreting.
ISIT, 2013-2014
“As interpreting is a performance, students need to be introduced to some acting techniques. Karen Twidle’s classes enable would-be interpreters to finetune some of their acting skills : voice, posture, public speaking. Finally, her classes always come as a welcome respite after an intense week of interpreting classes, and allow students to let go of the stress accumulated throughout the week and create bonds in a more relaxed atmosphere”.
