English-Chinese translation and interpretation have been my passion ever since college years. Prior to returning to MIIS, I worked at McKinsey & Company, a global management consultancy, as an in-house translator and interpreter based in Shanghai. There I spent half my time translating business documents, and the other half interpreting for the firm’s foreign partners at various client meetings.

TICH 8512 - Intro Written Trans to Chinese      

Introduces students to the basic theory and practice of translation, both written and sight. Students will learn to apply text analysis, text typology, and contrastive analysis of their working languages to identify, analyze, and resolve translation problems while independently developing an efficient and rational approach to the process of translation. The appropriate application of electronic translation tools will also be introduced. Fundamental translation theory will be emphasized at the beginning of the course and will be conveyed in the form of assigned readings, lectures, class discussions, and independent research. In addition, course assignments will include practice and graded exercises in sight and written translation, utilizing authentic texts drawn from an extensive variety of text categories that include, but are not limited to, current events, general political economy, general legal documents, and scientific and technical topics for general audiences. As the term progresses, student time and effort will increasingly be spent on the preparation and evaluation of written translation assignments. Students will be expected to take at least one midterm exam and one final exam, to be assigned at the discretion of the instructor(s) of record.

Introduces students to conference interpretation in general and consecutive interpretation in particular.

Develops students’ ability to identify, analyze, and paraphrase the meaning in the SL and establish logical relations between its components. Emphasis is placed on active listening and concentration skills, memory, the ability to abstract information for subsequent recall, and basic elements of note-taking. At the end of the course, students are able to interpret extemporaneous passages that are on topics familiar to them and are between three and five minutes in length.

In language-specific sessions and joint sessions with other language programs, students are introduced to the skill of consecutive interpreting in both theory and practice. They practice listening to and repeating the content of passages of increasing length and difficulty. Students hone their public-speaking skills by developing and delivering speeches. Content is interpreted on topics from daily life, current events and the media, and general areas of personal interest to students.

Course assignments include readings and research on class topics, presentations, practice, graded exercises, and peer and self-assessment. The frequency, nature, and structure of course assignments and examinations are at the discretion of the instructor(s) of record.

I have completed postgraduate studies in didactics and linguistics in the Spanish Basque Country. I currently teach content-based Spanish language classes related to social justice, history, Latin American history, US-Latin American policy, international trade, economics, and international relations. I learned to speak Spanish and Basque fluently while living in Spain and teaching ESL(English as a Second Language).  Because of my strong belief in both grammar fundamentals and immersion, I also lived and worked in Puerto Rico and Chile--where my love for the ocean and Spanish combined beautifully.
