Interpreting Spanish presents a new and original approach to the teaching of spoken Spanish to advanced students. The techniques of liason interpreting are presented as a highly effective aid to language acquisition and consolidation.

This comprehensive course consists of a Student Handout booka Tutor's Book and accompanying audio CDs.

The Student Handouts form an integral part of the course and have been designed to make the teaching and learning of liason interpreting as easy as possibly. They help students prepare for interpreting exercises and include a variety of features:

  • an introduction to the given topic, highlighting possible problems and strategies for solving them
  • audio CDs featuring 6 hours of dialogues for practice and revision
  • exercises related to the audio material, which students tackle alone, in pairs or as a group
  • useful vocabularly notes
  • interpreter's tips focusing on practical ways to improve performance
  • background notes to the dialogues
  • fully photocopiable handouts suitable for use both in and outside the classroom.

Interpreting Spanish is ideal for those who have not taught interpreting before. The Tutor's Book contains clearly structured teaching materials and practical suggestions on how to use them, together with general notes on class design, preparation, feedback and assessment.

The course will improve students' presentational and communication skills in both Spanish and English, and motivate them to eliminate linguistic deficiencies of a grammatical and structural nature. While learning new vocabulary and essential speech acts, students are introduced to a wide range of issues and registers.

Review:

'Together with clear, useful and user-friendly guidance on the skills required to be a good interpreter, the student handouts book provides brief but useful reminders of difficult grammatical points, thematic lists of phrases ... and items of key vocabulary ... The tutor's handbook is equally well written and is a helpful manual for those who have never taught interpreting before ... The price is reasonable given that purchase of the full pack allows the institution to copy the tapes and student handouts for classroom use. A lot of thought has gone into this course, and it is worth consideration by anyone teaching Spanish beyond A level.' Francis Lough, Times Higher Education Supplement
