Teaching Consecutive Interpreting: the first 6 months

This seminar will look at how the component skills that go to make up consecutive interpreting can be isolated and practised in isolation before being re-combined in the complex activity that is consecutive interpreting. The seminar will also discuss the order in which these skills might be tackled and the building of part of a syllabus.

Presentation, analysis, memory, note-taking and note-reading will all be addressed.

The seminar, through the exercises proposed as part of the above, will also look at techniques for increasing the efficiency of limited classroom hours and increasing motivation in the classroom.
