Teaching Consecutive Interpreting: the first 6 months

Andy Gillies will give a Training of Trainers Seminar on… Teaching Consecutive Interpreting: the first 6 months. The seminar will be held in Paris, from 1st to 3rd September 2023.

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 will also cover techniques for increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of limited classroom hours as well as at increasing motivation in the classroom.
