I learned how to perform consec years ago, during my degree program in Conference Interpretation, but had not often been called upon to use these skills. When I moved from France to the US, and began to work on the institutional market, I quickly realized I would need a serious refresher.
I am so thankful to have found David Violet and his consecutive/note-taking course! David is a seasoned professional and pedagogue. His course is so thoughtfully designed and all concepts are clearly explained. It has allowed me to reactivate my dormant consecutive skills and regain confidence in myself. I have performed long consecutive for some recent assignments and now, thanks to this course, I no longer dread or fear it -- I actually look forward to it!" And I think it has helped me with my sim as well. Focusing less on words and more on synthesis and meaning!
