Using the Technique of Subtitling to Improve Business Communicative Skills
The purpose of this article is to present a novel Computer Assisted Language Learning activity that can enhance both written and oral skills while providing listening practice and cultural information. With the help of a subtitling software, Business English students, especially those in distant learning environments, can progress on difficult areas related to functional language learning. All this thanks to a novel and highly motivational method: subtitling short business-related video scenes (taken from films, TV series or other sources) related to a particular com- municative function with ad-hoc activities.
