Teaching liaison interpreting, particularly if it is added to an institution's course programme as a non-core discipline, is a challenge for tutors. This paper aims to show how tutors can create simple, yet realistic situations, such as discussions, interviews, presentations and debates, before moving on to more complex situations based on scripted dialogues or role-plays involving specialist terminology. Having delegated a number of tasks to students, the tutor can focus on monitoring the quality of the interpreting and on providing expert support for the complex skills interpreters need to acquire.
