AMB048 Chinese - English Speech Interpreting

Unit synopsis

This unit is designed mainly for native speakers of Chinese who study in 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 for final approval. The unit teaches basic interpreting theories and help students develop practical skills in dialogue interpreting, sight interpreting and consecutive interpreting through a large amount of varied interpreting practice. Specifically, students will be trained through substantial practices to think and shift rapidly between Chinese and English so that they can conduct various types of interpreting in a wide range of situations.
