VLADIVOSTOK, April 9 (Itar-Tass) — Students of the Far Eastern Federal University (FEFU) will work as volunteer interpreters during the events of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum’s summit in Vladivostok. The first 25 young people learning the Chinese language have completed a special training course and on Monday received certificates of translators and guides-interpreters, the university’s press service told Itar-Tass.
Some of the volunteers will be working as interpreters during the summit events - at meetings, conferences, talks, and the others will be meeting guests at the airport, organise for them tours of the city, as well as to familiarise them with the summit facilities.
