This winter IEC will be offering Intro to Interpreting. This course will give advanced (400/500) ESL students an introduction and orientation to the field of community interpreting. Students will learn about the ethics and requirements of interpreting, how to practice and improve interpreting skills, and common vocabulary and practices for interpreting in legal, medical and educational settings. This course is offered in partnership with the University of Minnesota's program in Translation and Interpreting, and we are pleased to have Professor Scott Homler as a co-teacher for this class. This is a unique opportunity for students who are fluent bilinguals to get a first step into the exciting career field of language services. Students who successfully pass this course with a minimum of 90% attendance will receive a certificate upon completion. Intro to Interpreting will be offered in the afternoons from 1:30 - 3:30, Monday - Thursday for 6 weeks, starting February 9. Please contact the front desk to register or get more information.
