Giving feedback is obviously the most challenging part and it takes lots ot practice to get it right.

There is nothing more frustrating than a teacher asking you to focus on communication and then only giving you a list of all the details you have missed out as feedback. Clearly, interpreting is about mastering a lot of different skills simultaneously, but you first have to acquire those skills separately.


Moreover, focusing on one or two skills helps you identifying your student's main issue. Even if it's difficult, try to always give them solutions to improve when you give feedback.

Also, don't directly give them the answers to vocabulary or content issues, get them to find the solution themselves. If you want it to be useful for them even if they're not interested in interpreting, you could take the opportunity to help them improve their public speaking skills and native language's command with reformulation exercises for example.

For simultaneous, are you going to be teaching alone? If so you might want to either record the students and play the recordings afterwards if you have the material or have someone else a student maybe give the speech so you can focus on the students' output.

It might also be interesting to spend some time telling them about the reality of the job, the career perspectives, in case some of them are actually interested in studying interpreting. They make this handbook a stimulating reading by showing real-life aspects of this exciting profession.

The reviewer was initially somewhat surprised at finding excerpts from Abraham Lincoln's speeches among the authentic materials proposed to students: if my 'reading' of the author's approach is correct, perhaps the inclusion of a couple of historical speeches is expected to heighten students' respect for political discourse and make them feel more responsible towards the modern speeches they interpret, an approach I entirely subscribe to.

The chapter on 'figures of speech', in particular, made fascinating reading even for a seasoned interpreter-cum-instructor, as is the drafter of this review.
