English Retour Enhancement with Matthew Perret

This workshop is designed to help interpreters working into English “B” to develop repertoire, strategies, and reactions through interpreting and public speaking exercises. It will cover:
• English enhancement, with a focus on register and culturally sensitive language.
• Specific “retour” skills, such as analysis of mother tongue as a passive language, elaboration, and simplification for ease of comprehension, strategic use of intonation, “plan B” prioritisation, and coping strategies to avoid paralysing perfectionism.
• A refresher of core interpreting skills, starting with analysis and deverbalisation, to avoid auto-pilot and lexical and syntactic
contamination.

Trainer: Matthew Perret interprets for the European Parliament; writes and performs comedy and theater; and trains conference

Asia and to interpreters with native Asian languages.
