川菜最大的特点是品种多,口味重,以麻辣著称。

粤菜强调清炒浅煮,选料似乎不受限制。

中餐烹调所用的天然配料,品种繁多,几无穷尽;烹调方法也层出不穷,不可悉数。

points to remember
Points to Remember
  • Decoding is the first step in interpreting.
  • Both CI and SI require not ordinary listening but active listening.
  • Interpreters listen to meaning instead of words, they listen for both content and attitude, and they listen with ears, eyes, heart.
  • To improve the efficiency of active listening, interpreters are supposed to sit or stand comfortably upright; observe the speaker’s body language; and try to visualize the words.
