Course DescriptionThis course is designed to improve interpretation skills, accuracy and speed. All three modes of interpretation: Sight, Consecutive and Simultaneous are addressed by refreshing and practicing skills and techniques learned in the earlier courses of the program. We review and expand on the modules of terminology that were introduced in previous courses. The pace of interpreting will be faster and the exercises and assignments in this advanced course contain more complex legal terminology with regard to selections for sight translation, consecutive interpreting and simultaneous interpreting.
