Interpreting is a communicative activity found in many contexts, in communities, in corporations, or in conference halls. This course is the second part of the curriculum designed to introduce you to interpreting as a profession and its two main modes: consecutive interpreting and simultaneous interpreting. Throughout the course, you will interpret a wide range of authentic speeches. You will continue to polish the skills you acquired in the Introduction to Interpretation class and learn the various strategies used by experienced interpreters. You will also have many opportunities to utilize your language skills by serving as speakers, interpreters, and audience.
