Dubbing Projects for the Language Learner: A Framework for Integrating Audiovisual Translation into Task-Based Instruction
Danan, Martine
Computer Assisted Language Learning, v23 n5 p441-456 Dec 2010
This article describes a series of exploratory L1 to L2 dubbing projects for which students translated and used editing software to dub short American film and TV clips into their target language. Translating and dubbing into the target language involve students in multifaceted, high-level language production tasks that lead to enhanced vocabulary acquisition, register awareness, emphasis on concision, delivery practice, and mastery of paralinguistic elements. Such projects also increase learner motivation as students progress from teacher-directed, task-based instruction to self-initiated, task-based learning. Further experimental research should be conducted to generalize these findings and quantify the benefits of such dubbing projects. (Contains 1 note.)
