Gain valuable experience in interpreting in the simultaneous form-meaning at the same time as the speaker. In simultaneous interpretation, you must be able to listen in a source language and speak in the target language at the same time. Students will work on memory exercises, paraphrasing, completing dual tasks, visualization exercises, basic interpreting techniques, beginning strategies, and hands-on practice in every class. Learn about valuable (and mostly free) resources to help you practice interpreting, and get tips on how to build vocabulary, improve memory and speed, and much more. This course is approved for 12 CEUs with the Supreme Court of Nevada: Administrative Office of the Courts (AOC).
