Language Interpreter - Setting Specific
Through role playing and case scenario analysis, students will build on the knowledge and skills introduced in the previous courses in preparation for interpreting in different settings. Four interpreting settings are introduced and explored; court interpreting, interpreting with child victims/witnesses; health care interpreting; and interpreting in the violence against women sector. Protocols, procedures and techniques necessary for functioning effectively as an interpreter are reviewed and discussed forming the basis for problem solving exercises. A variety of articles with accompanying activities, and research and field observation assignments provide context to the course content. Prerequisite for this course includes the Language Interpreter - Consecutive course plus CILISAT/ILSAT Provincial Test.
