Lost in Translation

Lost in Translation

Emma Cresswell & Alastair Grant.


Inspired by a session by Gustavo Gonzalez at the Anglo Conference in Montevideo, this session looks at the role of translation in the EFL classroom.

It invites discussion as to whether there is a place for it, before looking at how teachers can exploit subtitles to explore the differences between their students’ L1 and L2.
