Oral interpreter in Egypt with DW Akademie
Oral interpreter in Egypt with DW Akademie is my new experience, it all began when Osama Asfour, the “project coordinator, Egypt Deutsche Welle Akademie” contacted me throw my web site, and asked me to accept the mission of the oral interpreter in Egypt with DW Akademie, I accepted his offer, it was a new experience for me especially when he sent me the Agenda and I could read the interesting subjects that I will get the chance to know more about and to translate.
The experience was unique and very interesting, I moved to Aswan, and asked him to let me meet the persons whom I am supposed to interpret with them.
I met Consrtanze Abratzky and Tine Mikliss, they were friendly and helpful and they could break the ice, they explained that DW Akademie is a German official association, 50 years old and it has a TV channel that we could compare it with the BBC.
