Seminar at Ghent University

On May 8,  15 students of the Master in Interpreting at Ghent University followed a special training on Verbal Interpreting for blind people of hard of hearing.

During a 1.30 hour seminar in the framework of the course of Interpreter Deontology, 15 students received a training based on role plays (see photographs of the classroom, the group, the role-plays, notes on the blackboard).

  2. How to introduce a blind person/hard of hearing
  3. Plain language
  4. Seating
  5. Interaction management (how to compensate the lack of eye contact or the hearing deficit), turn-taking
  6. Debriefing
