This paper is about two mock conferences which were carried out with students undertaking the second elective Simultaneous Interpreting module in their 4th year in the Degree in Translation and Interpreting at the University of Málaga. The design of these mock conferences was prepared in such a way that students took the role of interpreters and speakers. The intention of the use of mock conferences is to get students closer to what they will come across when they start working as interpreters. After the students had taken part in these mock conferences, they then expressed their opinions about these exercises.
