Elena Maughan is a Russian language interpreter in Somerset. WeLanguages provides linguistic services and helps professionals in the field share their experiences.
My Bachelor of Law degree influenced my decision to qualify as a Legal Interpreter and gain my Diploma in Public Services Interpreting (Law). I also hold a Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) Certificate. I teach Russian to non-native speakers and thoroughly understand the differences in phonetics between English and Russian and I use this knowledge to help people improve their pronunciation. I do pay a lot of attention to pronunciation and am currently working on an audio course. I help DPSI students with their studying towards DPSI qualification.
Working as a tutor, translator, interpreter of Russian and English languages over the years has helped me to understand the needs of language students and I enjoy having a chance to share my knowledge and experience. I am based in Taunton, Somerset but I also work in Devon, Cornwall, Bristol and other counties and countries.
You will be able to see more of my work when it goes live on YouTube shortly. I will update all the information in my blog.
