I just wanted to say that your seminars are instructive and entertaining, and led me to dust off every reference book I own from the Maria Moliner to my Dictionary of American Slang. The internet proved invaluable for many entries. It is always good for interpreters to be ever more nimble cyber researchers.


Keep up the great work!

It is just that I get my free time on such an irregular basis, in fits and starts, so it is nice if I have some lead time to start working on the tests.  Incidentally, I LOVE them!  I would almost as soon do one of your tests as read or eat chocolate, and definitely better than a cross word puzzle!!

Jenny K.

The seminars are a blast!


Mauri F.

CA Interpreter

Thanks for everything.  I thoroughly enjoyed each and every course.  I made the right decision to come back to American Pie this year also!


Victor S.

CA Interpreter

I really enjoyed working on the material!!!!  Thank you for all the work you have put into these distance learning seminars, they make learning fun and you don’t even have to leave the house.


Margarita S.

CA Interpreter

This evening has been a rollercoaster! Thank you so so much. You have no idea how much I enjoyed all these webinars. I will definitely be doing all my training with you!

Miguel P.

FL Interpreter

It was the perfect balance.  Even with the use of Internet, which at times makes things “too easy” to find, some of the questions require to research not only the single word contained in the question, but all four suggested answers.  Brilliantly planned!  I love these exercises in general and this selection in particular! (Vocabulary)

You are awesome.

I appreciate you so much.

Thank you...

Your classes are so informational. I learned so much from the materials.

You are continuing to amaze me with well researched and prepared terms and challenges.

On top of that, you have gone extra miles to assist your students( me) through unexpected difficult time (death in the family and surgery) this year.

I can't thank you enough.


Ann S.

CA Interpreter

I always enjoy your webinars, both instructor-led and non-instructor.  You manage to make your courses, fun, interesting, informative and stimulating!

You rock!!!

Hard, but not impossible.  I enjoyed the challenge, and learned a few things.  Thank you for the labor of love coming up with these excellent lessons.


Vicente E.

It’s a good exercise in fine-tuning our use and understanding of English.  And it encourages us to explore.


Carlo T.

Another great webinar by Tensi, very informative and well conducted. Lots of participation and a great way for us to get our continuing education credits at the comfort of our homes or place of work (like me). Thank you!

Cira P.

Very nice presentation. I learned a lot and was surprised in that I thought it would be quite boring instead it was very instructive. Thanks.


Peter P.

MD Interpreter

I really enjoyed your five CIMCE courses. These Webinars have helped me greatly by offering a convenient way to fulfill continuing education requirements. More importantly, they offer abundant and beneficial information to any interpreter looking to expand his or her professional horizons.


Thank you for being patient, professional, and an excellent instructor, and for sharing your knowledge and for all the encouragement that you kindly provide.


I will recommend you to all my colleagues.


I wish you all the best.


Sincerely yours,

Fawzi K.

The WebVocab.4 is a very interesting class. It is very informational and interesting. Tensi does not waste any words or time when she is teaching. She is very professional. Her deep knowledge of the English language encourages me to explore more the different facets of the language. It’s amazing how the influence of the languages interwined in many ways to arrive at our current form of the English language.


Thank you Tensi for the lively evening.


Maria C.

MD Interpreter

I enjoyed the ethics workshop, and I learned a lot. Thank you for having such productive and entertaining workshops!


Anthony B.

WA Interpreter

Thank you. I loved the course, especially because there were so many experienced people on and because of the realistic scenarios. Looking forward to the upcoming courses.


Elizabeth G.

MD Interpreter

Thanks to the wonderful team who made this event a successful one. Webinar host was very informed about the subject, professionally engaging the participants in a lively discussion and experience sharing. Absolutely satisfied with the subject matter and scenarios.

Tensi, you make these webinars VERY engaging, thank you so much!


Violeta D.

CA Interpreter

The webinar last Tuesday is my very first webinar ever.  prior to the date and time, i was very apprehensive of the connection because my laptop is quite old.   i was pleasantly surprised that it went very smoothly without any hiccups.


this is definitely a great way to learn and to fulfill the cimce requirement. i totally enjoyed the 3 hours of presentation.  well done!


Waikuan W.

CA Interpreter

I am absolutely loving your seminars! I continue to learn something new each and every time! Thanks for the quality that you provide. I can see that you really make the special effort to provide us with terms (etymology and origin) that continue to help us grow as interpreters!

Keep up the great work, it's greatly appreciated!


Isabel B.

CA Interpreter

It was a great presentation with a lot of discussions about different types of "conflict of interest" scenarios.

I like the fact that there was enough time to discuss all possible scenarios and how to resolve them.

Jannette R.

NM Interpreter

Another great webinar. Very informative, lots of unique idioms that can be easily confused if we are not careful. In addition to the well executed webinar, I am also always impressed by the professionalism of the logistics: Tensi and the team seem to be everywhere. Helping with everything from requirements tracking, making sure that everyone gets maximum credits, technical issues, all the way to registration. And always displaying positive attitude. Even though I am sure they have heard it all a million times; Thank you! 

Livia J.

CA Interpreter

I attended two webinars recently, and was struck with the following insights:

  1. Technology issues of a complex nature were easily and quickly resolved.

  2. The time went by fast for a three hour presentation.  The breaks were well respected and the time went by at a reasonable pace.

  3. The material became interesting because of the instructor’s vast knowledge

  4. The historical context for many of the phrases reviewed made it far more fascinating than otherwise.

  5. The class participation generated substantiated the liveliness of the presentations.

Thank you for the opportunity to participate.


Frank B.

CA Interpreter

It was a real pleasure to participate in the legal webinar WebLex.5 last Tuesday.

I enjoyed it so much that I stayed the extra 15 minutes with your Maryland participants.

Thank you for a very pleasant learning experience.


Jocelyne V.

I got addicted to the game, like downing a cold coke in a sizzling day, Even shared some with my 8-year-old daughter who loved it too. Big thanks!

Miriam J.

I ABSOLUTELY and THOROUGHLY ENJOYED this AMAZING webinar! I especially appreciated the ability for the attendees to participate audibly. That enriched the experience considerably. I definitely plan to take more courses with you!

Rebecca O

WA Interpreter

I enjoyed the seminars very much. Tensi is very good at having as involved. This helps us stay alert and learn a lot about the topic. Thank you very much Tensi

You rock!!!

Monica G.

MD Interpreter

You are succeeding beautifully in walking that fine line of not too difficult, but yet relevant and not widely known by all. I am always learning from you.


Myriam-Rose K.

CA and MD Interpreter

I can't believe I got all my credits! This has been the best way to do it all "in only one stop". I have to confess that at first I wasn't sure I was going to learn much, given my experience in years of attending seminars and workshops in which many times I got little, or nothing, new to take home. Once I started working on the first cyber course, I realized that I was indeed learning a lot of new things. The WebVocab.5 was fun and interesting. So many things I hear every day that I do not know, like the "translation, please" section. The "who said that?" section was hard, since I am not an English native speaker and some of those words were totally unfamiliar to me. I loved the three parts. I learned in all of them. Please keep up the good work, you are doing a fantastic job for the interpreters. It is not only to get the credits, but also to learn while we do it. I want to say it again: you are an excellent teacher! You are knowledgeable AND very engaging!


Violeta D.

CA Interpreter

Interesting and fun.

Frank B.
