TCI UWED has launched a program designated to unite efforts of those who are interested in interpreting, in increasing their knowledge of English, as well as in enhancing public speaking mastery on the way to gain necessary skills and reach good results. As part of this program, TCI UWED organizes annual student conferences on different topics, which are held in English and simultaneously interpreted into Russian and Uzbek by our students. So far about 10 Universities of Tashkent are participating in these conferences. TCI UWED conference held in December 2014 was devoted to “The Role of an Interpreter in Shaping up the General Image of the Country”. I’m sure that the participants of the conference do remember interesting speeches and an unforgettable master class given by the professionals in the field of interpreting. At present, our students are brainstorming ideas about the topic and format of our next conference. Here are some ideas which could be taken as a theme of the conference:
- Diplomatic etiquette and interpreting
- History of profession of interpreting
- “Smile and the world smiles with you: Interpreting and humor”
Which of these do you consider as the best one? Do you have any other interesting topics? We need your ideas. Anything to share? You are welcome!
