AMB047 Chinese - English Liaison Interpreting

Unit synopsis

This unit is designed mainly for native speakers of Chinese who study any discipline at QUT and who are interested in developing their interpreting skills applicable to various cross-language and cross-culture oral communication situations. Non-native speakers of Chinese who have acquired native or near-native competence in Chinese language can apply to do this unit too and they need to see the unit coordinator for an assessment interview before final approval. The unit teaches basic interpreting theories and helps students develop practical skills in dialogue interpreting, sight interpreting and consecutive interpreting through a large amount of varied interpreting practice. The knowledge and skills the students acquire through learning this unit will add to their competitive edge when they apply for work in any field of their own discipline.
