 Product Description

Interpret more effectively and energetically. That is the goal of top interpreter educator Carol Patrie, who writes: Interpreters must be able to quickly make sense out of what they see and hear, decide what the message means and how to transfer that message into another language with split-second accuracy." The stronger one's English skills, the better one interprets. Effective interpreters shift more easily between English and ASL, enjoy translating, consecutive interpreting, and simultaneous interpreting more, and have more satisfied clients.

Designed for interpreting students and working interpreters, Cognitive Processing Skills in English is full of challenging exercises with videotaped source materials to improve flexibility and agility with English, the kind of linguistic quickness that is essential to the interpreting process. The Study Set gives you a comprehensive, powerful learning tool with helpful theoretical Introductions for each topic, Study Questions, and a structured Five-Step Follow-up.

Topics include:
  • Comprehension of Source Material
  • Memory
  • Acuity and Discrimination
  • Immediate Repetition
  • Delayed Repetition
  • Number Repetition
  • Word Level Pattern Inference
  • Phrase Level Pattern Inference
  • Multitasking

These innovative step-by-step self-study materials to improve your cognitive skills and become a more effective, confident interpreter. Cognitive Processing Skills in English shows you how to fine-tune your English skills to make the "invisible work" of interpreting easier to manage.
