Program Description runs on
Speechpool Speechpool is one great website to practice interpreting and it has grown substantially since it was founded. It’s a repository of speeches specifically geared towards interpreters, and interpreters upload their own speeches in a variety of languages, so there is a wide variety of languages and topics to choose from. There are also often brief introductions to help you get an idea of what the speech is about, and sometimes even key terminology that you may want to look up beforehand. Any browser
Speech repository There are lots of different speeches on there, and some are quite difficult, so it’s a particularly good resource if you want a challenge.
