This is a great training program, we learned most important knowledge of being a medical /community interpreter in 40 hours. Ms. Cai is very professional and she is a wonderful instructor in this field. We learned code of ethics for interpreters in health care and standards of practice, these are basic rules that everybody has to know and to follow. We practiced the process of an interpreting session, basic interpreting skills, mediation skills, developing memory and note taking skills. Of course, for being a medical interpreter, we spent a whole day to learn medical terminology, I have to say, it is hard! What is the root, what is the prefix and suffix and its meaning...I know I still have a long way to figure it out. We practiced a lot by role plays, they were fun and let us know how to do in different situation.
