English Grammar and Language Awareness Part 1

  • Date: 8th May 2021
  • Time: 10am - 2pm
  • Cost: £70
  • Venue:  Remark! London
  • Suitable for: CSW, TSLI, RSLI & RSLT
  • 6 CPD points

Information

This workshop is an opportunity for native speakers of English to spend some time thinking about their own language in a practical and engaging way (and will not be as dry as it might sound).

Participants will explore the different word classes in English (nouns, verbs, adverbs, prepositions, adjectives, conjunctions) and the English tenses (from the simple past, to the present continuous to the future perfect).

Sign Language Interpreters spend time learning about the linguistics of BSL but English is often neglected. A deeper understanding of English might help us to become more communicators and impact on the way we deliver the target language when it is spoken or written English and even the way we produce BSL.  

Tutor: Russell Aldersson

Consecutive Interpreting & Translanguaging Theory

  • Date: 12th June 2021
  • Time: 10am - 2pm
  • Cost: £70
  • Venue:  Remark! London
  • Suitable for: TSLI, RSLI & RSLT
  • 6 CPD points

Information

This one-day workshop will explore consecutive interpreting (CI). We will look at the potential advantages of using CI as an approach for managing effective communication, often conducive for scenarios where the we need time to unpack a complex message or when clients do not have BSL as a first signed language. CI is not without its challenges however, and we will consider how we might implement note-taking techniques and organise the incoming message into manageable chunks as strategies for handling the task. We will also examine all of this through the lens of translanguaging; a theory of language but also a description of a linguistic process. A key tenet of translanguaging is the way we move across and between languages in a communicative act, but also beyond, and what that might mean for interpreters when undertaking a consecutive approach. The morning session is theory driven with an opportunity to discuss our professional practice and share ideas and experiences while the afternoon is a very practical opportunity to try out new ways of working using role-plays. 

Tutor: Russell Aldersson
