Summary:This course focuses on the note-taking technique for unilateral and bilateral consecutive interpreting occasions. The first goal of this course is to help candidates understand the basic concept of note-taking and to develop the skill and the speed to take notes during a speech. The second, more important goal is to help candidates establish a set of particularly developed signs, symbols and references identified as notes in consecutive interpreting.
Description
In the context of consecutive interpreting, either or both unilateral and bilateral, the technique of note-taking may be of crucial importance. It should not be assumed that the way notes are taken is not important at all. Quite contrary, the comprehensiveness of the notes will most certainly determine how successful the delivery of the interpreted discourse shall be.

This course is aimed at introducing candidates to the technique of note-taking from a purely pragmatic aspect. The first goal is to help candidates develop the skill and the speed to take notes during a speech to be interpreted consecutively. However, more importantly, the second goal of the course is to help candidates establish a set of signs, symbols, abbreviations, short references and similar representations of words, phrases, sentences and context for the purpose of interpreting a longer or shorter spoken discourse.
