On completion of this module, students will have acquired competence in basic liaison and consecutive interpreting techniques, including note-taking, ability to analyse and summarise main points in a dialogue or a speech and reproduce them in the target language.


During practical classes emphasis will be place on practice of liaison and consecutive interpreting which will involve the use of authentic material including bilaterial discussions on a variety of topics between native speakers of the practised languages as well as live or pre-recorded speeches of 4-5 minutes. A range of exercises aimed at developing memory, note-taking, annunciation and generally good presentational skills will be offered to groups of students.
