Individual/group work:
Individual and group study and practice are also required and are deemed essential for the successful completion of the course. They involve the creation of teams (working groups) of three students each, who practice together (4-8 hours of group practice every week). Participation in various conferences, seminars, meetings that involve interpretation, with students observing the proceedings and the work of professional interpreters from a silent booth, is also strongly recommended.
