LING 3910 The Practice of Sign Language Interpreting (3)

Visual memory, equivalent message content, vocabulary, register choice and cultural adaptations will be essential. A practicum component of actual supervised interpreting experience will be included in this course to ensure that students meet these criteria.

Method of Instruction: 2 lectures and 1 tutorial per week
Assessment: 40% in-course assessment, 60% final examination

This course is part of the Diploma in Caribbean Sign Language Interpreting, and is normally offered in Semester 3.
