TISP 8649

Consec/Simul Court Proceedings

This course builds on the knowledge acquired in TISP 8633, Introduction to Court Interpreting. Students will practice interpreting court proceedings, interviews and witness testimony in both informal settings and formal court proceedings. The simultaneous interpreting will all be English to Spanish, which reflects the reality of the U.S. courtroom; the consecutive interpreting will be bidirectional, with English questions and Spanish answers, also reflecting actual practice in the U.S. The standards of national certification exams for court interpreting will be explained and applied throughout the semester so that students will be prepared to take those exams upon graduation.
