Spanish Interpreting I

Instructor: Prof. Loida Slate

SPAN 351 introduces students to the theory and practice of interpreting in community-based settings. The course emphasizes targeted readings, class discussions, thematic workshops, role-plays, and hands-on practice. Successful completion of this course requires that students have an advanced command of the Spanish and English languages at written and aural levels and advanced cultural competencies in English and in Spanish. Although Spanish 351 isn’t a “traditional” language course in the strict sense of the word, students’ reading and writing skills should improve as they practice the art of interpreting. The languages of instruction will be Spanish and English, depending on the activities being discussed and the languages involved.

Prerequisite: SPAN 300 or instructor’s approval
