Court Interpreting Consec
This course builds on the knowledge acquired in TISP 8633, Introduction to Court Interpreting. Students will practice interpreting interviews and witness testimony in both informal settings and formal court proceedings, using role-play scenarios and scripts. They will learn to apply the Code of Ethics that was introduced in TISP 8633 in the real world, and will become more familiar with courtroom protocol. They will also acquire the ability to control turn-taking, learn how to intervene in different situations, and hone their note-taking skills. Each week a new topic will be introduced to help the students learn the specialized terminology of criminal and civil court proceedings. Regional differences in Spanish usage will also be emphasized throughout the exercises. By the end of the semester, students will be able to accurately interpret statements up to 60 words in length and will be ready to take oral certification exams for court interpreters.
