What Will The Test Ask Me To Do?

For Auslan into English, each test will consist of three tasks:

  • One simultaneous interpreting (monologue) of a seen speech
  • One simultaneous interpreting (monologue) of an unseen speech (long)
  • One simultaneous interpreting (monologue) of an unseen speech (short)

The test tasks will be based on real-life speeches at national and international conferences, meetings and events, at the level of experts communicating with an audience of experts and non-experts. Each speech will come from a different domain and setting, including at least one from the domains of science, health, linguistics, social sciences or humanities; one from the domains of public policy, social services or human rights; and one from the domains of education, disability or the deaf community.
