What is parallel text?
There are various strategies to learn a foreign language. An important and increasingly popular method in language learning is listening to 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 memorize sentence structures, vocabulary and idioms.
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! Most importantly, the language you are learning is put directly into context.
