These courses are administered by Language Connections in Boston, MA. To join an upcoming course, contact us (Inquire now button) to have a preliminary discussion about your current language level to be sure you will be accepted for the course. The requirements for a legal interpreter are somewhat higher than those for a medical interpreter because the terminology is more complex and less familiar to most - and perhaps more importantly, legal intepreting is simultaneous, whereas medical tends to be consecutive. As a general guideline, for the Legal and Court Interpreter course your Russian language level should be minimally C1 per the Common European Framework of Language Proficiency. This implies formal study of at least 3-4 years (or the equivalent, such as time abroad) or a heritage speaker. For the Medical Interpreter course, your Russian language level should be minimally B2, and preferably C1 or higher. For the Introduction to Interpreting course, you should be at the B1 level.
