Be an interpreter for a day


WHO IS THIS FOR?


Do you know what a professional conference interpreter does? Do you know how they work? If you are an ESO or BATXILLERATstudent (secondary school student) and you know French or German, the UAB Faculty of Translation and Interpreting would like to invite you to be an interpreter for a day.
 
AIM

We would like you to... 

  • see the value of speaking different languages.
  • get to know some of the secrets of interpreting.
  • feel inspired to go on with your French and/or German studies.

DESCRIPTION 

What are you going to do?

  • be introduced to the three interpreting modalities (whispered, consecutive and simultaneous).
