How to ask a question that will get good answers.

Hi! Does someone know the best way to prepare for the entrance test at the ETI (école de traduction et d'Interprétation) of Geneva? I haven't found any example on the internet! :-\

I took the first round of exams last year and it involved 2 types of exams: the first was listening to a short speech in the source languages and writing down a translation in the target languages; the second was translating newspaper articles from source to target languages

As a student, I highly recommend that you keep up with the news in all your languages starting yesterday, not only for the tests but for your interpreting life.
