Interpretation is both an art and a science, requiring very specialized training. Our federally certified and highly experienced instructors, combined with our extensive curriculum, offer a level of quality not easily matched.
The CITI is committed to providing students with individual attention. Much of the institute is spent in the language laboratory and small group workshops, working closely with instructors and fellow students on simultaneous and consecutive interpretation and sight translation techniques and strategies. Lab work is combined with lecture, maximizing the impact of both. Lecture topics run the gamut of areas essential to working interpreters, from legal procedure, drugs, weaponry, ethics and protocol, to memory development techniques, note-taking skills, and test preparation.
The objective of the CITI curricula is to provide maximum time-on-task to increase the benefit gained from practice sessions and critiques with faculty members. Additionally, comprehensive diagnostic testing is performed at the start and end of each institute, to give you a detailed analysis of how your language and interpreting skills have improved during the institute.
