The Blended Learning Model

Why The Interpreter's Lab is Different

How do we teach you?

The Interpreter’s Lab courses are blended learning models. This means that we bring together both instructor-led lessons and self-directed content to give students better access, and even more learning. Instructor-led sessions are the typical classroom – online and offline, and self-directed components can be done on your own time, as you wish and when it is convenient for you.

Regardless of the lesson format, an instructor will always be available to support your learning.

All courses include the following components: Live sessions (live means online or offline with an instructor), self-directed study and homework assignments

In addition to the convenience, improved access, efficiency and flexibility that our new Blended Learning model gives students, our programs also provide more learning than ever before.

How does that happen?

Because students interact with the instructors, course materials and related content in 3 different ways, making learning engaging and making you a better interpreter.

Plus, when you register for course at The Interpreter’s Lab you receive additional benefits:

  • Access to online content for up to 3 months
  • Access to future live course lessons for up to 6 months to make-up any missed lessons - FREE
