Community-Based Interpreter Training Course
ENTER THE GROWING FIELD OF LANGUAGE INTERPRETATION!
Join us for our Community-Based Interpreter Training Workshop at Nationalities Service Center to learn more. No interpretation experience is necessary. The workshop is open to all individuals. If you love languages, meeting new people, and thinking on your feet, this course is for you! You’ll learn about:
Different methods of interpretation, such as simultaneous and consecutive
The role of the interpreter in healthcare, business, and other professional settings
Intercultural communication, cultural competency, and how to be a “culture broker”
Ethics and boundaries
Clarifying, paraphrasing, and communicating shades of meaning
The workshop will use experiential learning, which means you’ll get plenty of chances to practice
interpretation strategies and techniques in different situations. At the end of the course, you’ll have a solid understanding of the basics of the interpretation profession, a toolkit of techniques, and a great foundation to interact with interpreters professionally or to train for your career as a professional language interpreter.
The Training will take place on 5 Wednesdays from 6pm to 9pm. The course dates are: April 23rd, 30th, May 7th, 14th, and 21st. The course costs $300. A Certificte of Achievement will be awarded to bilingual individuals, a Certificate of Participation will be awarded to all others.
