Creating a better classroom experience: On-site and virtual teaching techniques for conference interpreting trainers Permalink

Are you a conference interpreting trainer looking for fresh sources of inspiration in the classroom? Maybe you'd like to explore new horizons in online training? Or are you perhaps a professional interpreter interested in discovering your vocation as a teacher?

Whatever your background, in this intensive workshop, trainers Dick Fleming and Michelle Hof will guide you through a series of sessions designed to help you take your teaching to the next level.

The workshop, which will be held on the southern coast of the island of Tenerife, will cover a range of topics aimed at helping trainers build a better classroom experience, including:

  • Organising effective interpreter training sessions
  • Optimising classroom dynamics, feedback and assessment
  • Principles of adult training and e-learning
  • Best practice in face-to-face and online interpreter training
  • Practical aspects of the virtual classroom
  • Online and offline resources for interpreter trainers

The workshop will include discussions of the principles of on-site and virtual training as well as hands-on sessions where participants will be asked to apply their knowledge by planning and teaching lessons in both face-to-face and online classroom settings. The focus will be on addressing real-life issues faced in training, with participants asked to reply to a questionnaire in advance and bring along examples of classroom challenges for the group to address in a “doctor's surgery" format.

7th Tallinn course in English pronunciation enhancement Permalink

Trainer: Dr. Geoff Lindsey (BA, University College London and a doctorate from UCLA, California) - a one-man band that will push, pull, lure, provoke, cajole or force you into doing things that seem mad at first but which somehow make you sound English- participant comment

A new opportunity to upgrade your spoken English with the acclaimed English pronunciation enhancement course:

  • Fine-tune your ear for the key features in native English which differ from your own speech, especially contrasts which if not maintained may allow meaning to be 'lost in pronunciation'
  • Train your mouth to construct a more native-like accent, recognising and correcting established habits
  • Analyze contemporary native speech recordings
  • Extensive group and individual practice
  • Individualised recommendations for future practice

The course is highly recommended for interpreters wishing to polish their English or planning to add retour into English. Applications are welcome from all language backgrounds. A mix of mother tongues in the group is a positive factor, as pronunciation involves greater awareness and control of the differences between languages' sound systems. Previous participants have included speakers of Arabic, Estonian, Finnish, French, Latvian, Lithuanian, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian and Slovak.

We work 10:00-17:15 Thursday to Saturday and 10:00-16:00 on Sunday. (Course participants can also book private classes with Geoff Lindsey; additional fee applicable.)

Book early to avoid disappointment – previous courses have SOLD OUT. A minimum of 8 participants is required for the course. The maximum number of participants is 10. All participants receive a certificate. Cost includes tuition and refreshments (two coffee breaks per day). We have made block bookings at conveniently located hotels.

Geoff Lindsey has been teaching the intricacies of speech and accents for 25 years at London, Edinburgh and Cambridge Universities, at customized courses and to private students. See Geoff in action in some video tutorials here and here and on Facebook.

What previous participants say:

  • Exactly what we interpreters need
  • I knew that my English sounded foreign but I didn't know what to change. Now I know
  • Excellent combination of theory and exercises
  • Geoff was honest with everyone and none of the remarks he made felt like an insult
  • Every presentation was full of emotions and explanations were made lively and with passion

290 euros for early bird registration: until and including 10 May, payable by 15 May

360 euros for registration between 11 May and 8 June, payable by 12 June

To apply please contact Ülle Leis, ulle.leis@gmail.com

Cancellation: if the fee has been paid and the participant cancels before 12 June, the tuition fee will be returned, less 50 euros cancellation fee. For cancellations made on and after 12 June, no part of the tuition fee is returned but the participant may send another person in his or her place.

AIIC Training of Trainers seminar: Teaching consecutive Permalink

Andy Gillies will give a Training of Trainers Seminar on...

Teaching Consecutive Interpreting: the first 6 months

This seminar will look at how the component skills that go to make up consecutive interpreting can be isolated and practised in isolation before being re-combined in the complex activity that is consecutive interpreting. The seminar will also discuss the order in which these skills might be tackled and the building of part of a syllabus.

Presentation, analysis, memory, note-taking and note-reading will all be addressed.

The seminar, through the exercises proposed as part of the above, will also look at techniques for increasing the efficiency of limited classroom hours and increasing motivation in the classroom.

This seminar will cover much of the same material as recent courses in Paris.

Andy Gillies teaches at ISIT in Paris and is Coordinator of AIIC Training. He is author of Note-taking for Consecutive Interpreting and Conference Interpreting – A student's practice book. He has translated J-F. Rozan's La Prise de Notes dans l'interpretation consecutive into English.

AIIC Training of Trainers Seminar: “Conference Interpreting: What we know” Permalink

This seminar - to be led by Franz Pöchhacker - will provide teachers of conference interpreting with a state-of-the-art overview of research on conference interpreting and will cover both general and specific topics of interest, also in relation to professional and training issues. Two consecutive courses will be held to allow more trainers to attend.

The seminars will comprise three main parts:

  • 'Decades of development': an overview of the evolution of research on interpreting, i.e. of how our knowledge has come about;
  • Models of interpreting: a look at the most influential ways of conceptualizing interpreting - as interaction and as a cognitive process;
  • Selected topics: the state of the art regarding selected topics of 'basic research' (e.g. 'the interpreter's brain', 'memory in interpreting', 'strategies'), professional issues (e.g. 'quality', 'ethics', 'technology'), and training (e.g. 'aptitude', 'curriculum', 'exercises').

Trainer: Franz Pöchhacker is Associate Professor of Interpreting Studies at the University of Vienna. He has worked as a conference and media interpreter and published articles and monographs on various domains of interpreting, including the textbook Introducing Interpreting Studies (Routledge, 2004). He is co-editor, with Minhua Liu, of Interpreting: International Journal of Research and Practice in Interpreting, and had edited the Routledge Encyclopedia of Interpreting Studies (Routledge, 2015).
