I would like to register at our local school to attend evening classes of Chinese. Just to get around when I go back to China to visit old aquiantances.
But how does this match with translation?
After all, when you accept an assignment on Monday-afternoon with as deadine the next day, you can forget going to the language class the same evening? Evening classes at university have proven that translation is not very well compatible with evening classes.
