「stock」★ your aura captivates me。

Simultaneous interpretation

Although I'm not yet fluent in either Mandarin or Spanish, I'm getting to a pretty advanced level, and I plan on self-studying more over the summer. I would ideally love to be able to simultaneously interpret across any combination of English, Mandarin, and Spanish, mainly because I feel like that'd be a pretty awesome skill to have, and I'm sure it wouldn't hurt in finding a job. :P

Are there any resources for self-studying how to simultaneously interpret? What's the best method? Should I listen to news and radio and interpret aloud as they speak? Are there any guidebooks or websites I should check out?

Thanks in advance! :)
