For Filipino missionaries working in foreign fields

“Teaming with an interpreter” tutorial, from Speak Your Languages

This free course (with videos and text in MS Word or PDF) is for anyone who wants to communicate clearly with people who do not speak English. To communicate across a language barrier, you need the help of an interpreter who speaks both languages. But it’s a team effort. You can help your interpreter as much as he or she helps you. This course prepares you to work effectively with an interpreter, as part of a team. Working together, you will be able to communicate confidently and comfortably with people from all over the world.

Since it is about a team approach, interpreters will also find this course useful. All types of organizations will benefit, including businesses, professional services, non-profits, government entities and educational institutions. Highline Public Schools, near Burien, Washington provided support for development of this online tutorial in conjunction with professional interpreters.
