“A Study of Interpreting into English ”

Often referred to as “voice” interpreting, ASL to English interpreting can seem a daunting task. However, spoken language interpreters and translators most often work from their working language(s) into their native tongue, for a vast majority of ASL<>EN interpreters this would be ASL into English. Nevertheless, a phobia pervades the interpreting community and training programs alike. How can one overcome this fear? This workshop will guide participants through the basics of becoming comfortable speaking English in the presence of peers. Participants will also learn the foundational rules of public speaking, review the practice of ASL to English interpreting, and have ample time to practice with peer feedback.

Course Objectives Participants in this course will:
* Learn how to assess interpreted discourse in order to provide effective feedback,
* Learn and practice foundational skills of speaking in public,
* Discuss and practice interpreting ASL discourse into spoken English, and
* Have ample opportunities to gain insightful feedback in order to improve interpreting ASL into English skills
