All courses are given online. The courses are still rigorous and hands-on, but nobody has to commute anywhere! If you have any hesitation about online courses, please let Athena know, and she can put you in touch with other students to see how the online format has worked for them.
The courses will cover everything students need to know about the different modes of interpretation, giving them hands-on experience and tools for self-study. In the consecutive portion we will perform exercises in critical listening, comprehension, visualization, memory and note-taking. During the sight and simultaneous course we will break down the skills needed to keep up with high-speed and complex speeches. The students will perform new exercises and acquire the tools they need for precise and accurate interpretation.
The court interpreting prep classes are perfect for students with some experience who are hoping to improve their technique in order to pass their state tests. The federal prep course is designed for students who are already certified at the state level and are studying for the 2017 oral exam. Individualized coaching is available for anyone who is interested, and it is particularly helpful for addressing specific problem areas and obtaining personalized feedback.
