Translation Studies in German as a Foreign Language (GFL) in Africa (Nigeria). A Weapon Against “Waiting Room Dangers”
Keywords:Translation Studies, Additional Language Learning, Translation for Other Learning Contexts, German as a Foreign Language Lesson
The importance of translation in Additional Language Learning (ALL) cannot be overemphasized as there exists of late various studies in support of this fact. Extant studies on this issue have dealt with various aspects of translation about language learning in Europe, Canada, Australia and also in the US, although studies in this regard are not limited to these geographical boundaries. Moreover, these studies do not only focus on the impact of translation on ALL but also on various other issues like plurilingualism as it relates to translation in ALL. However, research in this regard are relatively scarce in the African context. As such, many studies done in Africa, particularly in Nigeria are limited in scope when it comes to the relevance of translation in learning German as a Foreign Language (GFL). This study therefore seeks to shed more light on how translation studies in GFL lessons in Nigeria could be useful as a weapon against “waiting room dangers”.
