Interpreting Taster Sessions

We had mentioned, a few weeks back, that we were going to be running a series of Interpreting ‘taster sessions’ for our final year students to give them a chance to try out the technology in the University’s new interpreting suite. These sessions have now taken place – run by two of our Literature and Languages Teaching Assistants, Allan Rae and Fanny Lacôte – and they were a great success, offering, in the words of one student, an ‘excellent way to become familiar with the exercise of interpreting’ as well as a means of ‘exercising short-term memory and improving note-taking skills.’ We’re hoping to find a way to run more of these taster sessions next year so watch this space…
