One of the main difficulties in transmitting knowledge and know-how in the field of interpreting lies in the initial phase of contact with this discipline. It is recommended tot first explain the precise method of working and to progressively introduce difficulties in order to create transitional phases in the first stages of acquisition. The author proposes a progressive approach to enable evaluation in all acquisition stages as it is not possible to efficiently evaluate knowledge and aptitudes that have not been clearly defined in advance.
