There are two main ways to learn, through direct experience and by observation of people who are more practiced.
This collection of videos provides an opportunity to observe interpreters working between ASL and English in a formal setting.
Formal settings require specific skills and coping strategies. With
Interpreting in Formal Settings students and working interpreters can
observe, study, and discuss the interpretations shown. The videos help
viewers notice the ways interpreting in formal settings is different
from other types of interpreting settings.
Although observation is the primary goal, the videos could also be used for interpreting practice.
The downloadable PDF explains the purpose of 'observational learning" and how to get the most benefit from "Interpreting in Formal Settings." Click on the title under the product image to view and download.
