This seminar for interpreter trainers with Andy Gillies will look at how the component skills that go to make up consecutive interpreting can be isolated and practiced in isolation before being re-combined in the complex activity that is consecutive interpreting. The seminar will also discuss the order in which these skills might be tackled and the building of part of a syllabus.

Presentation, analysis, memory, note-taking and note-reading will all be addressed.

This seminar will cover much of the same material as courses of the same title given in Rome, Turkey, Paris, Bangkok over the last few years though there will also be some new material.
