Laura Pisani and Mariana Prado won a scholarship to attend a professional three-day workshop, Consecutive Interpreting for Legal Settings. Taught by Janis Palma, the course is designed to enhance performance levels in legal settings of English-Spanish interpreters. Lectures include vocabulary, cultural and pragmatic aspects of language, and auxiliary skills such as note-taking. Drills range from short to long consecutive, and from street slang to technical vocabulary.
