I think that all the topics Dr. Colina covered were important, but the misconceptions of T&I were there ones that caught my attention. It is interesting that there is still a misconception or assumption that all bilingual people can either be interpreters or translators. In realty these two professions require highly advanced skills that many bilingual people do not possess. I also fell prey to this assumption because I thought the T&I Major would be easier for me because I am a native Spanish speaker. But I was completely wrong because I did not have all the skills to interpret simultaneously or consecutively until after practicing a lot. Translation also requires a high command of both the source and target languages so one must develop a wide vocabulary and many other skills.
