We have all been there: an attorney or a conference delegate walks in, comes over, hands us a document (a speech, a proffer), and says, “I tend to read very quickly, so I brought you a copy.”

We thank the speaker, skim through it, and make some notes. What happens next is key. Do you put it aside, close your eyes, and just focus on the spoken words? Or do you read along, interpreting as you go, and adjust to additions and deletions on the fly?

If you are in the former group, this session is for you! Attend and learn key techniques to translate your sight-reading skills into the simultaneous mode. Come prepared to practice!
What will you learn?
  1. How to skim a document to identify key elements in advance
  2. How to listen and read at the same time
  3. How to listen, read, and interpret at the same time
  4. How to adjust to changes in the text
  5. How to help your interpreting partner when working from a prepared text
