Tipo formación:
On this course, you will have the opportunity to improve your retour interpreting skills into English, while exploring the pitfalls this type of interpreting entails and learning how to avoid them. You will do this by brushing up rusty skills, gaining in confidence through experimenting in a non-threatening environment, exchanging best practice with colleagues, receiving practical and critical feedback from native speakers, improving reaction times, learning to be clear rather than literal, improving fluency, expanding vocabulary… and being inspired!

Metodología docente
The retour trainer’s role is not only to suggest how “I might have said it” in English - we will be looking at specific skills and strategies that you can apply to improve your interpreting into English.

These skills and strategies will be addressed in full group sessions (of max. 12 participants) and smaller breakout rounds. Participants will have the opportunity to practice their simultaneous and consecutive interpreting skills into English, provide feedback to their classmates and share good practice. Language enhancement activities will also form a key part of the course program.
  • Consecutive interpreting into English (10,00 h)
  • Simultaneous interpreting into English (10,00 h)
  • Language enhancement (10,00 h)
Criterios de evaluación
There will be no formal assessment. A certificate of participation will be given at the end of the course to trainees who have attended all of the training sessions.

If you are a professional conference interpreter with English as a retour or “B” language (active language at near-native proficiency) and you would like to improve your performance or brush up your skills, then this course is for you. Consideration will also be given to candidates with a strong English “C” (passive knowledge) who are planning to add a retour into English.

Please note that this course is not for students of interpreting; all participants must have recognized postgraduate qualifications and/or professional experience in conference interpreting.
Graduates of the University of La Laguna’s Master’s in Conference Interpreting will enjoy a 100€ discount on the cost of tuition (€895 instead of €995).
