Grow and hone your skills for the everyday challenges of educational interpreting. Confidently accept a variety of assignments such as: parent-teacher conferences, back-to-school nights and IEP meetings.

This workshop, developed for experienced educational interpreters, will prepare you to take accurate notes, interpret simultaneously, sight translate a document — and move from one mode of interpreting to another! (i.e. mode switching). Starting with a review of memory skills, you’ll strengthen your abilities to interpret accurately with in-depth practice on note-taking. Next, we’ll leverage message transfer skills to improve our simultaneous interpreting in educational settings. After that, we’ll tackle sight translation using the CALL method. (We’ll also introduce the pros and cons of summarization as a mode of interpreting.)

Finally, we’ll put it all together and practice switching from one mode of interpreting to another.

Designed and delivered by experienced educational interpreters, this workshop will build your knowledge, skills and insight through demonstrations, practice, activities, video vignettes, role plays and more.

Participants will receive a notepad and packet of specially designed materials — including many self-study activities for use after the workshop.

From our past participants:

Best training, very professional experience, well prepared materials, very helpful.

It was great! I feel much more confident in my ability to interpret and feel comfortable doing this.

Michelle and Leslie were very engaging — made it so much easier to stay motivated through the day. Thank you.
