Paper Title:
Teaching Interpretation for English Majors of Vocational Colleges - A Workshop Approach
  Abstract

Interpretation involves a great amount of practice. However, under the traditional teaching methodology the students do not have much opportunity to work in a real work situation. The class is usually organized with the help of simulated exercises. In that case, it is hard for the students to improve their interpretation ability. Therefore, the “workshop” methodology is introduced in the teaching of interpretation to cultivate the students’ autonomous learning ability and improve their interpretation ability by practice. Through an experiment it was found that compared with the control group, the experimental group was found to have made significant improvement in terms of pragmatical ability, cultural background knowledge, public speaking, conversion and psychological mechanisms. In addition, a questionnaire completed by the subjects in the experiment also proved that the workshop approach is in line with the characteristics of interpretation.
