Time to revisit translation?

  • Session A

Presenter(s): Sue Wood

Grammar-translation methodology has been frowned upon for years. However, our students inevitably use translation as a learning strategy. Given this conflict, isn’t it time to review our attitudes to translation and develop an approach that accepts reality and enhances learning opportunities for our students? This workshop will focus on the good, the bad and the ugly of translation and look at possible ways of incorporating the art of translation into our teaching.
