Facts About Interlinear Books

What Is Interlinear Text Interlinear text in foreign language learning varies from a text in a foreign language with the complete translation of that line below it, to having a word for word translation below every word. The advantage of having a complete translation of every line is that you understand the story. However you may not learn the meaning of every word, as foreign language idiom is replaced by idiom in your own language, and often individual words are translated differently. Word for word interlinear translation, or a translation with interlinear gloss, is a foreign language text where every...

Top 10 Advantages Of Manual Word-for-word Translation

In the last Blog we mentioned some advantages of learning a foreign language while reading with interlinear and pop-up translation. I want to expand on these here. As we're being flooded with standard text-wordlist-and-grammar-bit language courses or fancy online sentence-fill-in-the-missing word language lessons, not many people realize there's a faster way. A Classic Way. To start with, this way of learning has been around for thousands of years. Only when our society started to industrialize and needed adults in their factories separated from children (if they were fortunate enough to not have to work as well), and lock kids away...

Guest post: Bilingualism

Janine De Vries

The perks of working and living in a different language While bilingualism is an obvious asset, having to speak in a second language, usually English, when you have to think and talk smart and fast may be a disadvantage. ‘Non-natives have not one hand, but perhaps a bit of their brains, tied behind their backs’, as The Economist describes (Of two minds, April 9th 2016). Participating in a discussion, explaining a new strategy, telling office jokes- the right words might not always come to you fast enough, loosing the speed and timing to make your point. Native speakers have the...


The Classic Way Of Learning Languages

Adrianus Van den End

Thousands Of Years Of Learning Languages Word For Word Recently I was directed to and read an eight year old article by Ernest Blum on the history of language learning: "The New Old Way Of Learning Languages". In short it states that languages for thousands of years used to be learned word-for-word or with literal interlinear translations, where every word in the original text would have a corresponding gloss explaining the meaning and sometimes even the grammar. The idea behind this was that the student is helped on his way to becoming fluent, and that it assisted in building a large...
