Hi! Welcome to the Complete Interpreter podcast by the Interpreting Coach.
Why 'Complete Interpreter'? Because you're not just a translation machine, you're also a person and a business owner, and I hope to help you take a 360 view of yourself and share some great tried-and-tested strategies to improve your interpreting skills, mindset, and marketing.
In this episode, I talk about why consecutive without notes is a useful exercise, even if you graduated ages ago.
Here are some of the benefits:
- warm-up/firing up your neurones
- activating relevant vocabulary
- practising analytical skills
- practising visualisation to help you when you do consec WITH notes
- improving or maintaining your memory
- practising 'macro' (i.e. big picture) skills, rather than 'micro' skills.
For more detail on how to approach consecutive without notes, take a look at the Listening & Analysis resource on the ORCIT website, and watch this video from Andy Gillies.
Let me know what you'd like me to talk about next!
