Towards a Pedagogic Theory of Interpreting: Learning to Interpret, or Interpreting to Learn?
Pollock, Richard
Interpreting, or oral translation, can be used in undergraduate second language study as a technique for developing oral skills. The technique can produce both sound linguistic judgment and confident oral and written performance that last beyond testing. It integrates four essential elements of oral/aural skills: comprehension, phonology/fluency, lexicon, and grammar. The improvement of comprehension and fluency produces skills, and the reinforcement of lexicon and grammar produces knowledge. The combination of skills and knowledge produces performance. (MSE)
