Two types of interpretation courses are currently being offered at the undergraduate level in Taiwan: as an elective course offered in foreign language departments and as a core course offered in a translation studies department. The main objective of interpretation courses in foreign language departments is to enhance students’ listening comprehension and speaking ability via the interpretation training. The author argues that interpretation courses should be designed according to availability of teaching resources, teaching environment, language competency and knowledge level. He discusses the fact that teaching materials should simulate the actual interpretation environment, enhance students’ abilities to master idiomatic and frequently used terms as well as integrate the learning of a language and acquiring of knowledge and terminology among other things.
