Once again, Judy is delighted to teach her "Introduction to Translation" class online at University of San Diego-Extension. This five-week class is taught via a sophisticated online learning software (Blackboard) that is easy to learn. It's been a wonderful experience to teach beginning -- and many advanced -- students from around the world who want to know more about the industry. This class is part of an online certificate in Spanish/English translation studies, but this introductory class is open to everyone.
It's an asynchronous class, which means that students access the pre-recorded audio PowerPoint lessons at their leisure and then submit their work, all online. Students have included a full university professor, a nurse, an attorney, a student on a religious mission in South America, and students logging in all the way from Spain. A student has labeled this class a "reality check," which is quite accurate, as Judy wants to give everyone an honest look into our industry, including its joys as well as trials and tribulations. Students will learn exactly what it takes to be a translator. The feedback has been fantastic thus far, and Judy has now accepted to teach another class (Introduction to Interpretation), which starts in the fall.
The class costs $225 and starts 6/25. You can sign up here.
