I agree. When you are interpreting you have to think fast on your feet. I learned how to speak Spanish by asking how to say words and then learned by watching telenovelas. I am now fluent in Spanish I am also able to write and read it. I think when I try and use google translate it sometimes is put in a different way then we would actually express it. Also while interpreting it is difficult if both people are speaking at the same time to get the point across to either party. As well I agree that we need to be keen and skilled in the area we are interpreting.
