 Product Description

What element can no effective interpreter live without? Answer: Strong English skills. Only when you have strengthened your use and understanding of English can you transfer messages effectively to ASL. Gain assurance and increase linguistic capacity by boosting your English skills with the aid of English Skills Development from The Effective Interpreting Series.



Even if English is your first language it's important to develop English skills with conscious effort in order to build confidence and improve your versatility as an interpreter. Too often students and working interpreters neglect this critical area weakening their ability to master the complex tasks involved in interpreting between two languages. 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 English Skills Development is full of challenging exercises with videotaped source materials to build strong English skills and trigger the kind of linguistic quickness that is essential to the interpreting process. Give yourself a comprehensive powerful learning tool with helpful theoretical Introductions for each topic Study Questions and a structured Five-Step Follow-up.



Topics include:
  • Visual Form and Meaning
  • Meaning and Visual Form
  • Lexical Substitution
  • Paraphrasing Propositions
  • Paraphrasing Discourse
  • Main Idea Identification
  • Summarizing


These innovative step-by-step self-study materials can help you enhance your mastery of English and to become a more effective confident interpreter. The English skills we use in our day-to-day lives don't cover all of the skills required for interpreting. English Skills Development answers this need.
