The Deafhood course taught by Nigel Howard, will be offered again starting in January 2012. If you are interested, or anyone you know would like to take the course, the course is open. You would study with the interpreting students in this course. To apply you just need to apply to the college as a General Studies student and then register in the Deafhood course. For more details, please see the attached flyer.
The Douglas College students are hosting an appreciation evening for the Deaf and Interpreting communities as a thank-you for all the support over the years. It is the evening of Tuesday, May 31st from 5:30 till 8:30 in the Amenities room of The Lions building which is at 1331 Alberni St. Some appetizers and refreshments will be provided.
Do you have an event coming up in the next few months that requires interpreting services? For events that don’t pay for professional interpreters, Douglas College student interpreters might be available and happy to come and provide interpreting service.
To make a request, just e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know the date, time, type of event, etc. A student in the program will soon contact you to let you know if they are available.
Thank you for your on-going support of Douglas students as they work at becoming the best interpreters they can be.
