Hi everybody, I am from Syria (Middle East) and I can not find resources required for training or learning English Arabic interpreting (or vice versa). I appreciate any open source resources in this regard. Thanks and best regards,

Bassam Samir

Hi, Bassamlux:

I search over UN Webtv, and found there are some Arabic video resources, hope this can help you in some way.

The methods are:

1) you search by language, here say Arabic, this page has listed numerous videos;

2) go to topics & issues of Un Webtv, scroll this page down, you can find a vertical list, from where you can select by "member state" (your country Syrian Arab republic is also listed here). This way might be better, because for many conferences, two versions (either original or English) are available.

Best regards

I don't think there are many online resources for (m)any specific languages. This might be of interest but it's just one film

There are other sites that offer general training resources

to name but a few!
