Description

This language course uses liaison interpreting to teach spoken French to advanced students. Designed to provide an alternative to conversation classes, it is a highly effective aid to language acquisition and consolidation. Interpreting French will improve students' confidence in speaking and discussing a wide variety of contemporary topics.

Students learn a range of transferable skills including:

* oral proficiency in French and English

* presentation skills

* linguistic flexibility

* cross-cultural awareness.

Interpreting French is ideal for those who have not taught interpreting before. The pack includes:

* A Tutor's Book: how to make lessons a success, with notes on class design, preparation, feedback and assessment

* Student Handouts: a wealth of photocopiable resources for use in and outside the classroom

* Audio Cassettes: six hours of dialogues for practice and revision.

Reviews

'To produce a structured introduction to an activity as fluid as liaison interpreting is a challenging venture, which no doubt explains the dearth of appropriate material on the market. But Interpreting French … is a creditable attempt to fill the gap. Its three component levels … correspond to the three years of an undergraduate French course, though the speed of progression can obviously be varied to suit particular circumstances … The student handouts are nicely produced.' - Rodney Ball, Times Higher Education Supplement
