Greetings! Bilingual Citizen has teamed up with Utter Linguistics to offer a 6-hour simultaneous jam session workshop on Saturday, May 3, 2014, in Tucson, Arizona for beginning and aspiring interpreters or for anyone who would just like to practice and improve their simultaneous interpreting. In this workshop you will:
Explore simultaneous interpreting in a supportive environment
Discover your natural strengths
Leave with personalized feedback and renewed confidence
Practice using interpreting equipment
Work with authentic content from the legal, medical, and business fields
Take recordings home with you to continue practicing
By the end of the day, participants will have sharpened their simultaneous interpreting skills and received a personalized study plan from the instructor to improve even more while practicing at home.
We hope you’ll join us this Saturday, May 3, in Tucson for the simul jam session!! http://youtu.be/sZSsqpTB8LE
