From our students: "This course is unique and exceeded my expectations in every aspect. I absolutely recommend it." "The opportunity to discuss and work with people from across the United States is incredible! This course is of highest value to those who are interpreting in schools. Interpreting in a school setting is vastly different than a legal, community or medical setting and is needed to ensure best practices in the school setting." "This is the only quality course that I have found that is specific to education. It is a much needed course as are its companion courses. The instructor is amazing and it has been very insightful and given me information to better my practice." "Professor Soler is an amazing instructor. Her knowledge in abundant and she was a great conversation/discussion facilitator. She was respectful, professional and answered all small and big questions."
