3. Course contents *

This course is intended to teach master students interpreters, who are already working intensively with consecutive interpreting, techniques for simultaneous interpretation. By means of shadowing and memory exercises, a start is made with the basic skills needed to interpret simultaneously, with and without preparation for a specific theme.  During the course, the level of difficulty of the speeches will be increased; at the end of the course, students should be able to interpret a speech from French to Dutch simultaneously for between 10 and 15 minutes. In addition, they develop the competences needed to consider the interpretation process in an academic context. Audio recordings are used to analyse and adjust the performance of the students during the learning process.
