Course Description

Even though the consecutive mode allows interpreters to hear the entire utterance and take notes before speaking, interpreters may still find themselves forgetting details or confusing sequences of events. That is where the essential skill of memory comes in. Join Agustin de la Mora for this practical class on developing your memory skills with proven techniques that you can start using immediately. Learn how notetaking and memory compliment and support each other, as well as how to keep lists, sequences of events and more in order without writing a single word.
