Interpreting Web Site - David Still
It is with great excitement that I announce the launching of the Still Learning web site which is devoted to the education of ASL/English interpreters. We have just completed the production of five DVD-ROMS depicting 20 interactive scenarios categorized into 5 specific genres (Persuasive, Argumentative, Expository, Procedural and General Information). Please visit our web site and click on 'DVD's' where you can view a five minute QuickTime video presentation on the incredible components of this interactive DVD-ROM.

These DVD-ROM's are great for interpreters working in the educational setting wanting access to Professional Development.

Here are what people are saying about the series 'Still Talking...'

'These interactive practice materials are a welcome and much needed addition to the resources available for the education of interpreters. The realistic nature of the interactions, the wide range of talent featured, and the model interpretations, along with the tips for preparing to interpret, made these innovative materials beneficial for everyone from student to certified interpreter. This is a "must-have" set of DVDs!!'

'All interpreters at all levels of professional development will find the Still Talking DVDs to be incredible skill-development resources. You can use these realistic and versatile DVDs alone or with a study group. There is so much material to practice and learn from! The unique helpful features of these DVDs give you an understanding of where your own areas of strength and weakness are and provide you with guidance and examples of how to improve. A strength of these DVDs is the clarity of the visual images and easy-to-use format. I especially love the idea that in addition to a suggested interpretation for each utterance, you can also view modeled interpretations from different interpreters with a variety of backgrounds and experience. This is a great exposure to different interpreting styles and provides additional "food for thought" on each interpretation. I would recommend these DVDs unreservedly to all interpreters.'

I look forward to hearing from you.
