Black or white view.... Dec 6, 2008

"ETI", founded in 1941 is the "mother of all interpreter schools", which catered for to the need for interpreters after WWII. Their first graduates interpreted at Nürnberg.

It strikes me when asked which is the best, the German interpreter schools like Germersheim and others are left out. Perhaps because most students/respondents do not have German as A. Whatever Germany produces stands for quality.

All interpreter schools offer more or less the same. Part of which is best does not depend upn the school alone, but upon you: their final product.
After that, it is selling yourself on the market when you graduate which is important.

ETI vs. ESIT Jun 17, 2011

I have studied translation and conference interpreting at ESIT and I can say that it was certainly not easy and even a traumatizing experience.

ESIT Lacks appropriate infrastructure (3 computers in the so called library), teachers are weird, arrogant and disdainful towards students (especially interpreting teachers), you are permanently under pressure because they make you think that you will never be as good as them, but luckily, I made it. Of course, not all teachers were mean bu

ESIT Lacks appropriate infrastructure (3 computers in the so called library), teachers are weird, arrogant and disdainful towards students (especially interpreting teachers), you are permanently under pressure because they make you think that you will never be as good as them, but luckily, I made it. Of course, not all teachers were mean but the majority was. I also have to admit that some teachers were extremely professional, talented and respectful towards their students and those are the ones who made me stay at ESIT, otherwise I would have moved to Geneva if I had enough financial resources.

Many of my colleagues studied at ETI and they are all happy about it: perfect infrastructure (a huge library that I saw when I went to Geneva), teachers are professional and encouraging, etc. One of my friends even left ESIT for ETI and never regretted it. Moreover, most of my colleagues at the UN are from ETI, which means that ETI graduates are apparently more successful in the UN competitive exams.This can be explained by the other huge advantage of ET compared to ESIT: it is in Geneva where many International organizations have their HQs and offices, which means that you are sure to have the chance to do your training in a professional environment, and above all, you are sure to get a well paid job even before you graduate.

ratatuha, well unfortunately... Oct 24, 2011

unfortunately it looks like ETI doesnt have slovenian in its offered language combinations (at least for the masters in interpretation)

see: http://www.unige.ch/traduction-interpretation/enseignements/formations/ma-interpretation_en.html

but if you were willing to pick up german or italian, you might be able to consider the Karls-Franzens-Universität Graz, in Austria, or the university of trieste, in Italy.

There's sure to be other universities that offer slovenian in their combinations. good luck

ESIT - teachers shout at tudents and insult them?? Dec 21, 2011

The other approach is just the opposite, interpreters are made, not born. This approach highlights the fact that most interpreting skills are acquired by practice (lots of, anyway) hence the program should focus on the acquisition of those skills. This approach then takes into account the potential that you might have to develop those skills and become a good interpreter.

In any case, both approaches agree in that native and near native domain of your working languages are preferred

Teachers shout at students? Are you serious? How can that be considered to be a serious schoool?

Can you give me some advice on the admission exams? Feb 4, 2012

Hi Erika,

I've applied to Geneva this year and I'll attend the written exams in March.

Can you give me any advice on these? I've obviously read all the docs which the uni provides but can you give me some more details?

All the best,

Linda

ETI exams (bis) Jan 11, 2013

Hi everyone,

Happy new year! I'm going to echo Linda's question from last year, which didn't receive a response, but I'll cross my fingers.

I would like to know if anyone has advice for preparing for the ETI exams? I have four months to prepare, and would like to develop a weekly schedule to practice different components, so any advice is greatly appreciated.

I have four months to prepare, and would like to develop a weekly schedule to practice different components, so any advice is greatly appreciated. I've seen other forum discussions regarding developing interpreting skills, but I was wondering if anyone had any advice specifically for exam prep?

Thanks in advance!
