Hi all,

I am planning to enroll for a DPSI course in November, but am the only one of my language combination in the centre I have chosen. I would like to ask if there is another Slovak interpreter thinking about taking this course (and the exam) as I was told it would be very good if I had a partner for the assignments in my 'other language'. The examination centre I want to go for is the Alperton College - as it was the only one able to accept me for combination with Slovak (and they were also very helpful).

If you are interested or can give any hints regarding the course / college, please let me know.

Thanks,

Kate

Hi Kate,

Did you attend the DPSI course in Alperton College, or did you just take the exam there?

Thanks,

Ewelina

No, I didn't. Jul 7, 2011

Hi Ewelina,

No, I eventually went for a distance course with Global Language Services, and am happy I did so. It was all I needed and I also got my own Slovak tutor. I took the exams in IoL open center. I went to the Alperton College to inquire about the course in person and did not get a very good impression of them, also, it was really far from where I live. But things might have changed since then... If you can, try to go there and speak to them yourself if you consider signing in, that will probably give you the best idea...

Good luck!

Kate

Hi Kate,

Thank you for your reply. I actually went there to their open day. Unfortunately, my impression was not good either. I did not want to resign just relying on that but I cannot find any opinions about them. Other colleges are either too far or do not meet my requirements.
I also considered distance course but was not sure whether it is as beneficial as the ordinary course.
Could you please share more details on your experience with this course, the type of practise, materials etc. that you were given and did you feel it gave you enough preparation for the exam?

Thank you!
