Winter School 2015


Bergen, Norway

Registration is CLOSED

For reasons beyond our control we had to postpone our efsli Winterschool in Norway.

As soon as we have more information, we will of course publish it on the efsli website.


Organised by:




The 2015 efsli Winter School is organised by the European Forum of Sign Language Interpreters in cooperation with the Norwegian Sign Language Interpreter association. We are looking for trainers able to design and deliver a short course on the topic ‘Interpreting with service uses with minimal language skills’ . For this purpose, efsli invites experienced trainers from the sign language interpreters’ community to share their expertise and work in a stimulating European environment.


The tentative schedule (subject to confirmation) is as follows:

Friday 30th January from 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm
Saturday 31th January from 9:30 am to 5:00 pm
Sunday 1st February from 9:00 am to 12:00 am

The course will be presented in English.
Correspondence with efsli and any documentation (course handouts, feedback forms, etc.) should be in English.

The topic of the efsli Winter School 2015 is ‘ Interpreting with service users with minimal language skills: make your Sign Language more visual’.

It is expected that the course should comprise a combination of research, theory and practice.

We are still searching for a trainer.
