Description

This innovative language course uses liaison interpreting to teach spoken Spanish to advanced students. Designed to provide an alternative to conversation classes, it is a highly effective aid to language acquisition and consolidation. Interpreting Spanish 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 Spanish and English

* presentation skills

* linguistic flexibility

* cross-cultural awareness

Interpreting Spanish 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:four hours of dialogues for practice and revision

Reviews

'Together with clear, useful and user-friendly guidance on the skills required to be a good interpreter, the student handouts book provides brief but useful reminders of difficult grammatical points, thematic lists of phrases … and items of key vocabulary … The tutor's handbook is equally well written and is a helpful manual for those who have never taught interpreting before … The price is reasonable given that purchase of the full pack allows the institution to copy the tapes and student handouts for classroom use. A lot of thought has gone into this course, and it is worth consideration by anyone teaching Spanish beyond A level.' Francis Lough, Times Higher Education Supplement
