Internal News - 20 October 2006

ESML course celebrates its 40th anniversary with a new interpreting laboratory

The Department of European Studies & Modern Languages has upgraded its language laboratory as part of its ongoing plans to replace analogue facilities with digital laboratories.

Students on the Masters in Interpreting & Translating, which was launched in 1966, will use the new Sanako Digital Laboratory for simultaneous interpreting classes and weekly mini-conference practice.

The new facility will give teaching staff much more flexibility with regard to the source material they can use - media files can be downloaded directly from the internet as well as digital audio files recorded on an mp3 player.

Students will have access to their performances using Shared Network Space (SAN) where a system of folders has been set up to enable staff to distribute and receive material directly from students without using email.

The laboratory, funded by the ESML departments, is located in 1 West and it is used exclusively for teaching and training on the Masters in Interpreting & Translating.
