Synchronised from the original, with subtitles? – Languages and audio visual media

By | News | No Comments

In the last few years, access to audio visual media has become faster and more diverse. This is especially visible in movies and tv series. Users decide on the form in which they access the content and when; they demand multilingual versions, flexibility, and availability as soon as possible. Technical advances such as streaming, internet media libraries, video portals and storage media like DVD and Blu-Ray allow constant access to content. Additionally, social media have created a platform for fans who translate their favourite films themselves (crowdsourcing), thus putting pressure on the professional translation sector.

Learning foreign languages: a question of attitude – and method

By | News | No Comments

Communication is everything. This frequently quoted principle not only applies to resolving conflicts, but also to learning languages. Many polyglots, people who speak many languages, begin to use their new language almost straight away. Their motto: It’s best to jump straight in at the deep end!

At the same time, however, they observe the native speakers during their conversations and work toward emulating their interlocutors’ facial expressions, gestures and the way they form the sounds…

OEB 2016: “Owning Learning” and what happens when students take control

By | News | No Comments

Ownership is the new buzz-word in education. Tomorrow’s learning is about ownership. We will own our learning. We will control what, where, when and how we learn. We will access, link, combine, interpret and interact with knowledge. We will be empowered as never before. We will make learning work for us. Increasingly, it is the learners themselves who will own their education. And over 2,300 international education professionals will be in Berlin this December to discuss the implications.

Tongue twister video competition

By | News | No Comments

“Fischers Fritze fischt frische Fische. Frische Fische…” Tongue twisters are a popular way to practice a foreign language. ‘Tre Tigre’ (Three Tigers) in Italian, for example, is a fun and effective way to get used to rolling ‘Rs’.
