Course description

This course concentrates on the acquisition of knowledge and the enhancement of skills introduced in Course I-IV in preparation for interpreting in different settings.

Protocols, procedures and techniques necessary for functioning effectively as an interpreter are reviewed and discussed forming the basis for problem solving exercises. A variety of articles with accompanying activities, and research and field observation assignments provide context and add to the richness of course content.
