What is parallel text?
There are various strategies to learn a foreign language. An important and increasingly popular method in language learning is parallel texts, also known as "bilingual texts" or "interlinear texts". Parallel texts include the translation in the learner's native language. Parallel text works best for Indo-European languages, as grammar, syntax, and quite often vocabulary can be similar. This makes it easier to compare, process and memorise sentence structures, vocabulary and idioms.
Using parallel texts is a great way to learn a new language. Being able to use the new vocabulary in context helps students memorize the new words in different forms more quickly. For those who simply need to refresh their language skills, parallel text helps quickly revive some of those old brain connections!
Parallel texts give immediate feedback to the student, eliminating the need to look up other recourses such as dictionaries or online translation tools. Moreover, comparing words, phrases and idioms in the two languages is incredibly useful for memorizing them and becoming familiar with the sentence structure, which can increase your grammar skills while avoiding boring and often complicated theory!
