Вебинар. The Return of Translation

The Return of Translation

For too many years, the use of L1 in language teaching has been proscribed or ignored by methodology experts, whilst many teachers have continued, sometimes guiltily, to use the language of their students when they felt it appropriate. Now, however, the wheel is beginning to turn and there is an academic and research consensus that supports the use of L1 and translation in the language classroom. This does not entail a return to the dry and dusty days of grammar translation at its worst. The webinar will begin with a brief overview of the arguments for the use of L1 and translation in language teaching. I will then look at a wide range of practical techniques and activities which involve elements oftranslation and which can be accommodated within contemporary approaches to language teaching, and can be incorporated into the repertoires of language teachers of all ages and levels.
