School of Modern Languages and Cultures: German Studies


Academic year 2018-2019

This module develops the interpreting skills gained in the interpreting strand of the 2nd-year Core Language Module (GERM2021). The aim of the module is to enable students to mediate orally between German and English fluently and at speed. Interpreting is primarily from German to English, although English to German interpreting is introduced in the liaison exercise. Most of the material used comes from the proceedings of the European Parliament. The exercises cover the four basic skills: liaison, consecutive, simultaneous interpreting and on-sight translation.
