Community of Practice: ASL to English Practice

The language and choice of vocabulary that we choose to use when interpreting from ASL into English has a large impact on the perception of the deaf individual by the English speaker.

In this session we will:

  • Practice interpreting high level ASL presentation into high levels of English
  • Practice framing constructed discourse and action and summarizing details
  • Identify Powerless Language and practice eliminating it.

Facilitated by Teresa Ford, this will be a more open format than a regular workshop with full participation by all who attend.  Open to all levels of interpreters, students to advanced. Practice your skills in a safe, encouraging environment. Learn from your colleagues and have some fun doing it!

If you have any questions, please contact Teresa Ford, tfordinterpreting@gmail.com
