Exploring Translation in Language Learning, Hardback Book

Exploring Translation in Language Learning Hardback

Part of the Gdansk Studies in Language series


This book explores the functions and potential of translation in language learning.

It demonstrates that despite its changing fortunes in the history of foreign language teaching, translation has a prominent part to play both in the L2 classroom and beyond.

As a cognitive process and a quintessential communicative activity, it not only boosts the learner's bilingual and bicultural competence, but also promotes and accelerates the development of the skill of translation.

Considering its diverse educational assets as well as the results of a research survey presented in this book, the author argues that translation practice should become an integral element of contemporary foreign language education.
