I should say "humour," as this blog post by Count Smorltalk is a quick trip to European English Land. Click to the right to read the article about an excellent book on the above important subject for interpreters. All interpreters must master the art of taking notes for consecutive. Count Smorltalk is quite funny but has dealt nicely with a serious topic. Andrew Gillies' book on note-taking for consecutive lays out nicely the basic concepts I learned back in the eighties, and then adds a few. Read this article for fun. Then go and get Gillies book for the serious stuff. Then practice like crazy to master consecutive.
