This week Guy does something a little bit different. He’s joined in the studio by Grego Villalobos, an interpreter for the European Institutions in Brussels, originally from Peru. He also happens to be learning Hebrew, so he’s an avid StreetWise Hebrew listener.

This was a great opportunity for Guy to engage with a listener; to find out how Grego uses the podcast, what he finds most difficult about Hebrew, and to allow Grego to ask him questions.

Grego also gives us a demonstration of simultaneous interpretation: Guy speaks in English while Grego translates into Spanish. Impressive!
