In this 3-hour online workshop, we will study memory retention techniques to improve accuracy and completeness in consecutive interpretation. We will explain how to implement each memory technique within a systematic framework called the ‘’memory algorithm’’. After presenting each technique, you will put it into practice with targeted exercises followed by personalized feedback. We will also review the most common challenges to memory retention and how to overcome them with deliberate practice strategies. This course is ideal for all interpreters interested in improving their memory retention skills, regardless of their specialization field or level of experience.

The workshop is delivered live on Zoom or can be watched as a recording. Students will need to spend 3 hours watching/attending the presentation and at least 1 hour completing the self-paced exercises which are available in the form of audio recordings, PowerPoint slides, and PDFs. In order to obtain a certificate of completion, the student must complete and pass a quiz with a grade of at least 70%.

    Engaging and practical webinar. Gave a 4 because I could not grasp the working memory exercise which to me was THE most important one. That said, I’m glad for the link and will try to work on that.

  5. Vidalita Thielen

    It was an excellent training with many practices on different areas of the memorization. The more we listening the experience of other, the better we understand how the process of memorization work for each individual.

    Yes, it was a great training Nanyi. I needed to practice to prepare for the CHI oral exam. The webinar gave me that opportunity with many great tips and different techniques of how to foucus, listen, and increase memory capacity. Interpremed is a great source for all interpreters. It is full of practice material for both the written and oral national certification preparation. Lots of audio recordings and note taking excercises. Nanyi, you are always helpful and all your trainings are excellent.
