Integrating Google Translate to Support Language Acquisition for All Second Language Learners.


Almost all second language (L2) students admit to using online translators at some point (Jolley & Maimone, 2015) and almost all language departments prohibit students using translators, such as Google Translate (Clifford, Merschel, & Munné, 2013; Knowles, 2016). Second language students persist in using online translators despite overt policies by their institutions to the contrary. This workshop will outline the reasons students use online translators, the advantages of an integration approach to online translators, and the benefits and limitations of using Google Translate in the L2 classroom. The presenter will also outline practical methods and approaches for incorporating this tool that supports language acquisition and academic integrity at all levels of language learning.
