EUR-Lex - Simple search

EUR-Lex - Simple search | TELT | Scoop.it

Shona Whyte:

This search engine allows you to access the database of European legislation in any EU language and it brings up texts which are available in at least two languages.

 

My colleague Margarita Georgieva who teaches translation at the University of Nice explains:

 

"If you are looking for legislative texts or any specialized texts, there is a database of translations which has both English and French versions - http://eur-lex.europa.eu/
You can search for keywords. From tissue paper to toothpaste and fisheries... anything you think of, they have it.  […] They are great to use in class - to compare translations and suggest improvements or to learn vocabulary."

How to integrate dictionary work into EFL teaching | TELT | Scoop.it
Shona Whyte:
Marcus Murilo Lacerda, EFL teacher in Brazil, has summarised this Twitter discussion among ELT professionals on using dictionaries with learners. The summary includes pros and cons of in-class use, links to online dictionaries and corpora, and ideas for the classroom. Lots of good sense and concrete suggestions.
