Workshop Information: 

Interpreters rarely have the opportunity to discuss and develop the foundations of their current work. This class challenges you to think deeply about meaning and how this deeper analysis can improve your work. This session includes discussion and practice on the following topics; visual form and meaning, meaning and form, lexical substitution, and paraphrasing. Includes tips on what to practice and how to practice to keep your skills sharp. This workshop is based on The Effective Interpreting Series: English Skills Development and ASL Skills Development.
