The Effective Interpreting Series: Simultaneous Interpreting from English - Teacher's Set

Simultaneous interpreting is the ultimate goal for interpreters. Guiding students toward becoming a confident and competent simultaneous interpreter requires using a careful sequence of learning activities that focus on critical components.

Simultaneous Interpreting from English is the fifth volume in the Effective Interpreting Series. Combined with the other four volumes with source materials in English, the series offers a complete approach to interpreter education. These powerful, research-based materials use models of interpretation centered on practice. The exercises, along with the skills, move from more manageable to increasingly challenging.

Teacher can get the most out of valuable contact hours with students by assigning them the same source material to practice with at home. The series helps track student progress and encourage the development of independent and accurate self-monitoring skills.
