This interactive stimulus provides a good opportunity for novice interpreters to work with receptive fingerspelling and classifiers.
This video is good practice for an intermediate to advanced student. The conversational pace is just right for practice. The Deaf consumer is clear but does tend toward ASL so it is good practice for interpreting. The topics switch a few times during the conversation so it provides a variety of subject matter.
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.
