As it was created to replace slide presentations, Prezi’s interface and visual story-telling makes it ideal for conveying information interactively. Prezi is not new but if you are just starting out, it may be a little disorientating to use, beyond the basics. Granted, it will also take you a while not to get over-excited with the zooming feature but that is a different topic for another day.

Teaching with Translation: A Journey from L2 to L1 in the Classroom Translation a skill that constitutes a real world demand, and yet, it is rather underrated in Brazil while it is broadly used in countries like Japan and China, for example. Despite its disadvantages — such as giving students the false impression that there is always a one-to-one correspondence between L1 and L2, for example, it offers learners the chance to practice it as a skill that is necessary in a large number of situations such as translating a text to a non-English speaker or working as an interpreter for conferences. However, translation is not to be confused with the grammar-translation method, whose goal was to learn a language in order to read its literature (Richards and Rodgers, 2008).
