Workshop on Subtitling and Dubbing in Foreign Language Teaching Saturday 11 February 2017 9:30 – 15:00
The main aim of these workshops is to provide teacher training in the use of subtitling and dubbing techniques for foreign language acquisition purposes.
Both workshops will provide a general overview of the different possibilities for the use of these audiovisual translation modalities in class, as well as practical exercises that you will be able to use with your students. Content includes subtitling to enhance listening comprehension, motivation, group projects; dubbing to improve oral expression; adding voice to a clip for narration purposes; karaoke. As a secondary objective, the workshops also aim to provide an alternative to practising ‘translation’ in preparation for A-level exams due to the changes in the legislation.
The material provided is of intermediate level (B1-B2) and can be used for different language combinations (English, Spanish, French, German). Accordingly, if you are an A-level or undergraduate languages teacher, you are more than welcome to join us!
