Objectives

  • Acquire the fundamental skillset required to successfully train simultaneous interpreters

Audience

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

Programme

3 thematic modules provide a solid grounding in the skill-and-task analysis for simultaneous 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.
