Title : Subtitling YouTube videos: An experiment in Content and Language Integrated Learning
Type : Paper (25 minutes)
Category : Individual session
Abstract :

Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) is a multiple-focus approach that allows for the simultaneous teaching of content and language, underpinned by the 4Cs framework (Content, Communication, Cognition, Culture). In the light of this approach and the corresponding framework, a subtitling project was experimented by a small group of fourth-year students at the University of Languages and International Studies - Vietnam National University, Hanoi, who were offered to do a specialised course called Topics in British Studies: The Invention of Childhood. The students were instructed to work in groups to find approximately one-hour-long un-subbed documentaries on Youtube, produce their own subtitles and organise in-class activities to present their collective outcome and obtained information to their peers. The survey conducted after the course showed the students' positive reception of the project, fine appreciation to most of the 4Cs components and constructive feedback on the problems they encountered. The task, however, did generate questions regarding the appropriate assessment and beneficiaries. Based on the students' survey and the teacher's observation, suggestions would be made for future applications of this integrating, autonomy-fostering and technology-based assignment.
