Practice with a friend or two: Scripts

Step 1:

Ask your friend(s) to play the English speaker and non-English speaker roles. Have your friend read their part(s) (without you seeing the script), and then interpret what they say into the other language. We recommend recording yourself so you can listen to how you did afterward.

Step 2:

Review the script with your friends, and ask them how accurate your interpretation was. Take notes on what you can do to improve your interpretation and what terminology you need to learn.
