Two-Tone CDs, Volume 1: English-Spanish Simultaneous Practice

The Two-Tone technique is a new concept from ACEBO.  Each stereo  Two-Tone CD contains both source material for you to practice  interpreting and a model interpretation of that same material  by an expert interpreter.  The source material is on the left channel  of the CD, and the interpretation is on the right channel.  Thus,  by using your stereo's balance control, you can hear only the  source, only the interpretation, or both.

If your stereo does not have a balance control, you can still use a Two-Tone CD, but you will need stereo headphones: Instead of turning the balance control to the left, you listen to only the left earphone; instead of turning the balance control to the right, you listen to only the right earphone, etc.

When you listen to the interpretation provided, not only  are your terminology questions about the passage answered, you also  gain valuable insights into the time lag, or décalage employed by an expert interpreter.

Volume 1 of the Two-Tone CD series contains English source material,  with a simultaneous interpretation into Spanish by Holly Mikkelson,  a nationally and internationally recognized authority on court  interpreting.

Volume 1 contains the following passages:
