The Role of Translation in Second Language Acquisition.
Cordero, Anne D.
French Review, v57 n3 p350-55 Feb 1984
Banned from the classroom by followers of the "direct method," translation has been overlooked as a desirable skill in its own right, and also as a valuable medium of the teaching process. With this skill, the students learn to understand and utilize a dictionary, practice pronunciation, build up vocabulary, perfect writing ability, and improve comprehension of the target language.
