Event Details

The Oral Portion of the Consortium Interpreter Exam for the State Courts can be tricky and challenging if you are not well prepared for it. Many people waste considerable amounts of time and money by repeatedly taking this test. This intensive exam-preparation workshop will give you the tools to have the upper-hand for the next round of testing this February. 

The trick is to know “what & how” to study. With that in mind, some key highlights of this workshop are:

  • An intensive focus on the texts, proceedings, and situations you will most likely encounter on the test.
  • The identification of scoring units to substantially increase your scores on each component.
  • Tips on how to improve the three modes of interpretation that you will encounter in this test: sight translation, consecutive interpreting, and simultaneous interpreting.
  • Avoiding common pitfalls that can hinder your performance.
  • Having the vocabulary arsenal: idioms, proverbs, expletives, false cognates, physical descriptions, automobile terms, weapons, drugs, among other relevant terms, that are commonly used in Interpreting standardized testing.

This workshop will include a brief review of the key strategies presented in session I, before focusing on the application of said strategies via many more practice exercises and mock testing-like activities. Several additional files (documents and recordings) will be presented and shared online with the attendes for future practice.
