Consecutive interpretation—a crucial skill in both court and medical settings—requires mastery of techniques that help maximize accuracy.  This webinar will introduce the techniques and skills used in consecutive interpreting, including chunking, visualization, notetaking, and situational control, among others. Participants will have the opportunity to practice these skills during the webinar. This language neutral webinar is taught entirely in English and is open to interpreters in all languages.
