Google Translate - "Lost in Translation" activity

Google Translate - "Lost in Translation" activity
Product Description
Have your students started using a translator? Do you want to teach your students how messages put through a translator (or a computer translation) are "lost in translation"? This activity is for you!

I found this great YouTube channel. The woman takes popular songs and puts them through several layers of Google Translate. It perfectly shows how the lyrics and meanings of the songs are "lost in translation".

The activity has questions to prompt student thinking about Google Translate AND GOOGLE IMAGES. It then leads into a lesson on how to use online tools for language learning.

I hope you like!
