  • One simultaneous monologue into Auslan task 
  • One simultaneous monologue into English task

How Should I Prepare?

CSLIs have advanced research skills that enable them to perform in complex and specialised interpreting situations. The ability to prepare for assignments in advance and to use appropriate available resources is one of the skills the CSLI Test assesses. 

Briefs for each interpreting task will be sent out one week before the test date to allow candidates to prepare. For the simultaneous monologue into Auslan task, a Case Summary Sheet will be sent out 24 hours before the test.
