writer, teacher, translator and broadcaster
Graham Fawcett, MA, MCIOL, CLTA, is available to provide one-to-one coaching to candidates proposing to take the Chartered Institute of Linguists Diploma in Translation examination in January 2020.
As well as his Cambridge degree in English (1967) and the Goldsmiths Certificate in Teaching Foreign Languages to Adults (1991), he founded, devised and ran - from 1997 to 2008 - a course at Goldsmiths College to prepare students for the Institute of Linguists' Diploma in Translation examinations (Italian-English and English-Italian).
Published translations include Federico Fellini's Cinecittà (Studio Vista) and Giorgio Bagnoli's The La Scala Encyclopedia of Opera (Simon and Schuster).
The coaching sessions, which would be held at Graham Fawcett’s house in Central London, would be based on a two-hour unit of input by the coach, the first hour being one of preparation (including the marking of scripts of up to 100 lines of A4 printed text) and the second hour a one-to-one meeting for coaching, feedback and discussion.
The fee would be £150 per two-hour unit (payable in advance) or £1200 for a series of ten two-hour units (payable in two instalments of £600, the first instalment due before Session 1 and the second instalment before Session 6). Single-hour consultations which may or may not lead to further sessions are available at £80.
