Canzoni per l’insegnamento linguistico-culturale del tedesco e per la didattica della traduzione
This paper aims to discuss the way in which song translation can be used as an effective way of language/translation teaching, focussing in particular on German as a Foreign Language in higher education at the university level. Starting from some considerations about the distinctive features of song lyrics and their use as a didactic tool in foreign language, culture and literature classes, a reflection is proposed on a way to introduce pop songs also in language/translation classes in relation to a variety of possible translation skopoi.
Keywords: Foreign language. Culture and literature teaching. Translation teaching. German as a foreign language. Pop song translation. Translation and creative rewriting.
