This week, my students are having to take their oral exams for the translator state certification. The first part took place yesterday, parts two and three will be on Friday.
I will have to test them in at-sight-translation (part 2 of the oral exam), both from and into German and English, one general and one economic text. There are three groups of students, which means, I have to prepare six texts altogether. So not only do the students have to get ready, but we teachers do, too!
This is going to be the first oral exam I’ll be taking “on the other side” – and I admit, I’m a bit nervous about it. Not a whole lot, but a little. But I’m sure, all will be well, for all involved!
So I hope you’ll understand that I can’t stay around to chat… 😉
