General information

During the 5-day course, you will learn about the ethical and practical issues of interpreter-mediated communication in the public sector. You will be introduced to different techniques and strategies that are most useful in public interpreting contexts (legal, asylum-seeking and medical settings).

Students will receive instruction for developing the main interpreting skills of active listening, analysing, processing and reformulation and will know the difference between different modes, types and methods of interpreting in public settings.

As well as providing practical knowledge about interpreter-mediated communication, this course promotes interlingual and intercultural understanding, autonomous learning, teamwork and problem-solving.
