Charles Tiayon's curator insight, October 14, 2013 2:38 PM

Viral content site BuzzFeed plans to launch French, Spanish and Portuguese homepages this month — but to do so, it won’t rely solely on traditional translation or regional editors. Instead, BuzzFeed will use language-learning site Duolingo to translate some of its most popular content.

Duolingo has about 10 million users and has raised over $18 million from investors including Union Square Ventures. It teaches six languages for free through its mobile and web apps. The translations aren’t free to BuzzFeed, though: It’s paying for them.

“From the beginning, our plan to finance the platform has been to have our students translate real-world documents as they practice their foreign language skills,” Duolingo CEO Luis von Ahn wrote in a blog post scheduled to go live later on Monday. “We like this model because it’s a mutually beneficial arrangement: students receive high-quality, completely free language education, and organizations get translation services powered by the students.”

(TOOL) (PDF) - Translation and language learning: The role of translation in the teaching of languages in the European Union | europa.eu

"The active promotion of a Europe that is multilingual and multicultural largely requires that individual citizens be plurilingual or polyglot. This requires the learning of languages, but not only that. The European Council, meeting in Barcelona in March 2002, called for ‘action to improve the mastery of basic skills, in particular by teaching at least two foreign languages from a very early age’. This ‘Barcelona objective’ was then the basis for the 2003 Action Plan Promoting Language Learning and Linguistic Diversity, where the improvement of language teaching was recognised as a major element in achieving that aim. This was followed in 2006 by a report on The main pedagogical principles underlying the teaching of languages to very young learners, which offered a review of current research on language learning. In 2007 the European Framework for Key Competences for Lifelong Learning mentioned ‘mediation’ in passing but conceptualised language proficiency in terms of the four traditional basic language skills. Also in 2007 there was a more general report on The diversity of language teaching in the European Union.

Meanwhile, data on progress in language learning have been collected in the Eurydice reports on Key Data on Teaching Languages at School in Europe (2005, 2008, 2012), in the Eurobarometer reports Europeans and their Languages (2006, 2012), which include information on the most common and effective ways of learning a language, and in ..."

Technology in language learning | British Council Voices

Technology in language learning | British Council Voices | computer assisted language learning | Scoop.it

Technology is very much part of language learning throughout the world at all different levels. We are as likely to find it in the primary sector as much as in adult education.

 

I no longer need to make the case for computers to be provided in education, because computers are there in abundance in all their modern forms.We may see traditional computers in labs, teachers and students walking around with laptops or tablet PCs, and many people will have a mobile phone in their pocket that is capable of doing rather more than the mainframe computers that started computer-assisted language learning in the 1960s. I do recognise that there are many kinds of digital divide, and that this is not true everywhere.

 

What is still sometimes an issue is the reliability of these technologies for classroom use. This can discourage teachers from making use of technology as often as they would want to. It’s compounded by the fact that, if these teachers are working in schools, they are faced with classes of learners who may, on the surface at least, appear to be more digitally competent than their teachers are. Learners can therefore challenge their teachers, in ways that put the latter off using the technologies that could potentially make such a difference to what happens in the classroom.

 

In my recent book for the British Council, Innovations in learning technologies for English language teaching, I argue that digital technologies are ideally placed to help teachers working with learners, and learners working independently, to do the necessary ‘languaging’ (M. Swain) that makes their language development possible. We are talking here about doing things with language rather than just learning about language. Swain argues that learners can’t simply develop based on input.  We must engage with other people using that language, and try to make meaning together. Whenever I speak or write something, if I don’t produce language with someone else in mind, I have no way of knowing whether others can understand what I say or write. Of course, I need to read and listen as well, but unless I progress to this further stage, I can’t complete the process.

The idea of having students doing things with language rather than just learning about language really strikes a chord with me at the moment. It helps to justify the risk we took with our webinar this week. It may not have seemed like a 'lesson' on the surface but students were certainly learning.
