CAS Consecutive Interpreter Training – 2018

Objectives

Acquire the fundamental skillset required to successfully train consecutive interpreters

Audience

Professional interpreters wanting to develop a comprehensive understanding of the consecutive interpreting process in order to train the next generation of consecutive interpreters using systematic teaching methods

Programme

Three thematic modules provide a solid grounding in the skill-and-task analysis for consecutive interpreting, cover the sequencing of training materials based on an incremental approach and focus on the diagnosis of recurring problems including the development of targeted solutions. Seeing the intended objective, which is to train court, medical, public service but also diplomatic interpreters, the certificate course does not comprise the development and teaching of a comprehensive note-taking system (see DAS in Interpreter Training). Tasks and skills in Consecutive Interpreting • Sequencing and planning in Consecutive Interpreting • Problems and remedies in Consecutive interpreting
