Designed to provide an alternative to conversation classes, it is a highly effective aid to language acquisition and consolidation.

Interpreting French is ideal for those who have not taught interpreting before. The pack includes:

* Student Handouts: a wealth of photocopiable resources for use in and outside the classroom

* Audio Cassettes: six hours of dialogues for practice and revision.

Reviews

'To produce a structured introduction to an activity as fluid as liaison interpreting is a challenging venture, which no doubt explains the dearth of appropriate material on the market. But Interpreting French … is a creditable attempt to fill the gap. Its three component levels … correspond to the three years of an undergraduate French course, though the speed of progression can obviously be varied to suit particular circumstances … The student handouts are nicely produced.' - Rodney Ball, Times Higher Education Supplement

About the Authors
