This workshop presents the first published research examining interpreting from International Sign to spoken English.
This webinar will be of interest to sign language interpreters (including BSL and ASL) looking to enhance their spoken English, whether they use international sign language or not.
All of the strategies identified are techniques that many sign language interpreters do or could use in their everyday work.
