Translation, Technology and Autonomy in Language Teaching and Learning

Series:

Edited By Pilar Alderete-Diez, Laura Incalcaterra McLoughlin and Labhoise Ni Dhonnchadha

This volume brings together contributions from academics, language teachers and practitioners from across Europe and beyond to discuss questions of autonomy and technology in the area of language learning and translation. The book focuses on English, French, Italian, Irish and Spanish language acquisition, but many of the essays also develop an interlinguistic perspective from a plurilingual point of view.
The book opens with key contributions from a number of leading scholars: Dr Daniel Cassany on critical literacies, Professor Henrik Gottlieb on translation into ‘minor’ languages, and Professor David Little on autonomy in language learning. These are followed by explorations of translation, technology, intercultural issues, autonomous learning and the European Language Portfolio. The volume represents an important contribution to the development of new plurilingual approaches to language teaching and learning.

Gabhaimid buíochas lenár muintir a thacaigh linn agus an obair seo idir lámha. Ní fhéadfaí an foilseachán seo a thabhairt chun críche gan cuidiú agus saineolas ár sár-chóipeagarthóir, Anna Mc Donnell Dowling – go raibh maith agat, a Anna.
