An Integrated Model of Autonomous Learning in Chinese-English Translation Learning: A Conceptual Paper
Keywords:Autonomous Learning (AL), Chinese-English Translation Learning (C-E TL), Translation Process
Chinese-English (C-E) translation plays an essential role in China for its communication with the world, thus cultivating high-quality translators is of great value. Numerous attempts have recently been made to explore effective C-E translation learning methods. The present paper draws upon the findings of previous studies and integrates two theoretical pillars of autonomous learning and translation process to construct an integrated model of autonomous learning (IMAL) in C-E translation learning. This model involves learners, peers, and teachers with each playing their respective role in the autonomous learning process. Further theoretical and pedagogical underpinnings for this IMAL are discussed.
