The more you read, the more you speak and learn, the better your interpreting skills are. As well as you need to get more experience.

Interpreting is a practical skill, not fancy high-tech. We can follow the saying: practice makes perfect. However, no house can be built on the beach. Interpreting skill also needs a firm foundation. For school students, the emphasis may not be on interpreting practice, but on reading enough, listening enough and repeating enough. Here I intentionally avoid the term of speaking. Before we are sufficiently familiar with the language, that is, our eye sees no exotic words, our ear hears no Greek, our tongue does not twister at English, and more importantly, our  mind no longer dwells on CHINESE, speaking is out of the question. As the Chinese saying goes: a brook without a source, and a tree without a root. Ok, back to the point: my suggestion is, listen to standard English radio for 2 hours a day, and read 2 novels a week in the library, and read anything in English as much time as possible in the open air. And, if it’s possible, repeat to fellow students or friends whatever you have read, listened or seen in English. It’s much better than the so-called Practice Speaking.

    Well explained James. I have a little different opinion. I spent lots of time practicing speaking English. It’s also a good way to improve your pronunciation. Of course, you’ll have to know how to pronounce each phonetic correctly before vast practice. Either way. Good luck.

From my point of view, it’s very important to accumulate more experiences of interpreting. Most customers prefer to work with someone who is experienced in their product. So my suggestion would be to try to obtain more opportunities to work as an interpreter and you’ll improve gradually.
