Video Description

Brad and Jim share various personal stories.

Reviewer Notes

  • In this convivial conversation between Brad and Jim, good-natured subject changes are frequent in this relaxed environment. Topics vary greatly but feature an upcoming medical procedure and the size of families in the past. Each person contributes to the conversation for an almost-equal interactive interpreting experience.
  • This video is a casual discussion typical of small talk one has with a new person.

About this Video

The interactive videos in this series were created in partnership during the Graduation to Certification program through a collaboration between the CATIE Center and the Duluth Branch of the NAACP. These unscripted conversations were interpreted by novice interpreters in the GTC program and the video was edited to the best of our ability to remove the interpretation to create practice material. There may be some legacies of the original interpretation such as repetition due to the original interpreter asking for clarification or sometimes all of the interpretation may not be edited out due to overlapping communication.
