4月12 日,南洋女中举办了双语奥林匹克比赛赛前研讨会,旨在通过分享和研讨,提升翻译课教学的效率和乐趣。与会者除了参赛小学的负责老师,还有南中华文部和英文部的老师,以及一些海外的来宾。

演讲嘉宾联合早报网主编兼《新汇点》主编周兆呈博士,发表了题为《双语:从技能到生活方式》的主题演讲,他与大家分享了一个有趣的语言现象,即虽然每个人只能有一种主导语言,但在全球范围内普遍存在着作为生活方式的双语现象,开拓了与会者的视野。

Interlexis Private Limited 的执行董事陈丹枫先生也和大家分享了“好的翻译”的标准,并以椅子的四条腿形象地比喻了好的翻译者需要具备的四个基本素质:语文能力、专业精神、学问与知识、对互联网的认识和应用。
