HI everyone, I am new and have applied for a job as a Interpreter in the city I live in North Carolina, USA. I learned Spanish beginning at school and then Meeting my Husband and living in Honduras , Ca. for a year. I have been speaking spanish with my husband for 18 yrs, have translated for him, for friends of ours, and thought I would apply for a job getting paid for it. I can read spanish fairly good( took 2 yrs in H.S.) and 2 yrs in College, and am a little rusty at writing. I speak ok, but could never pick up the accent , but understand it really well. I am kind of nervous because I will be given a test orally and written. I live in a area that has lots of immigrants( mostly mexican), and there is a great need for spanish speaking people. Any suggestions would be great.
Oh yes the job is working in the public Health department here, and I do have a book that teachs Medical terms for non -native spanish people.
