Course Description:

Sight Interpreting is a selective course for third year English major students. As a particular working mode of interpreting, sight interpreting consists of the oral rendering of a written text from one language to another. It requires students to master a set of principles including syntactic linearity, anticipation, and readjustment. Students will be trained to analyze long and difficult sentences, deal with numbers and figures in texts, and understand the gist of texts quickly so that they can interpret the written form of the source texts into the target language efficiently with considerable accuracy and fluency.
