Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'Together with clear, useful and user-friendly guidance on the skills required to be a good interpreter, the student handouts book provides brief but useful reminders of difficult grammatical points, thematic lists of phrases ... and items of key vocabulary ... The tutor's handbook is equally well written and is a helpful manual for those who have never taught interpreting before ... The price is reasonable given that purchase of the full pack allows the institution to copy the tapes and student handouts for classroom use. A lot of thought has gone into this course, and it is worth consideration by anyone teaching Spanish beyond A level.' Francis Lough, Times Higher Education Supplement
