This course is designed for interpreters or future interpreters who have a good command of English and would like to further develop their English skills. Understanding the source message when it is in English is a crucial skill, often overlooked in interpreter education. The exercises deal with English only. Topics include finding the main point, outlining, abstracting, prediction skills, cloze skills, finding key words and propositions and text analysis. Also included will be exercises on figurative language, metaphors, and similes. This course is not included in the major.
