Comments from our students and graduates:

My name is Lindsei M. I am from Brazil, but live in Massachusetts. My languages are Portuguese, English, and Spanish; I also working on my T/I(interpreting/translation) degree at the Boston University- Eng./PT. I decided to get training with Culture Advantage (recommended from one of my professors) so that I could acquire some experience in the interpreting field before graduating from school. In all, I am excited to get started in a new career and want to thank the Culture Advantage team for making it possible. I am very thankful for Marlene; her patience and support got me here... so thank you.
