Improve your simultaneous interpreting skills as you adopt more advanced strategies to work with speakers at higher speeds, to train your ear to understand different dialects, and to solve specific interpreting challenges such as idioms, jokes, false starts, etc. In addition, students will get more detailed information on the different settings in which the simultaneous mode is used (court, medical, conferences) and will gain basic knowledge of interpreting equipment. Expect to do extensive interpreting practice at home in the simultaneous mode to build speed, problem-solving abilities, and depth and breadth of vocabulary.
This course is approved for 12 CE credits with the Supreme Court of Nevada: Administrative Office of the Courts (AOC).
