TRAN 618: Introduction to Interpreting


The aim of this course is to give students some preliminary training in Consecutive and Simultaneous Interpreting, which they may pursue fully in a professional school.  With this training, students will be able to do some Liaison Interpreting, if they are so pre-disposed and possess the flair for it.
