Simultaneous interpreting provides an immediate interpretation of speeches and dialogues. Through simulations, role plays and audio/visual exercises participants will develop skills in simultaneous interpreting without the use of electronic equipment. Subsequent to the theory overview, participants will practice: active listening, shadowing, retelling, paraphrasing, note taking, memory exercises and self-evaluation. Based on exposure to exercises and simulations, participants will develop and practice entry-level skills and techniques used in simultaneous interpreting in various settings and contexts.
