One question... Apr 26, 2002

I heard about this program before. I also heard about the program offered by the Monterey Institute of International Studies in California. Does anyone know which one is better?

Sorry for not getting back to you any sooner.



Personally, I don\'t know anything about this program, but the Monterey program is a full-time course leading to a Master\'s degree. So, if you are looking for substance (and a degree ), Monterey will be your best bet (but it\'ll be a lot more expensive).



However, I am convinced that even a short program such as this one has its benefits (especially for those that have been involved in translation and/or interpretation and want to hone their skills).
