It focuses on skills of two-directional interpreting (English and Korean) and provides you with foundations for paraprofessional interpreting. It also examines techniques for analysing and rendering dialogues or passages of different styles and complexity. In addition, the course addresses cross-linguistic and cross-cultural problems relevant to para-professional interpreting, including lexical/grammatical problems and ethical implications. The course covers a range of authentic spoken texts and a variety of topics including socio-cultural, educational, commercial and political themes.
