Course and tutor description
Consecutive interpreting is a mode of interpreting in which the speaker makes a speech whilst the interpreter takes notes and then reproduces the speech in the target language. The interpreter is normally standing or sitting close to the speaker, uses a pad and pen to take notes. In order to be a good consecutive interpreter you must be able to make useful notes which will jog your memory of the speech as you give it back, and then be able to make the speech as if it were your own in your active language.
In this course, a professional conference interpreter runs an introductory session on note taking in consecutive interpreting.
