Il presente articolo analizza il concetto di unità psicolinguistiche e del cosiddetto modello del futuro e la loro applicazione nell’insegnamento delle lingue straniere. Lo studio di aspetti come il supporto nella lingua materna di uno studente di lingue straniere e i processi di creazione del discorso svelano l’importanza che ha la traduzione nell’apprendimento di una seconda lingua. I dati che ci fornisce la ricerca di alcuni aspetti psicolinguistici (come le unità psicolinguistiche) nel processo di traduzione si rivelano essenziali e di grande utilità quando si tratta di definire un metodo di insegnamento di una lingua straniera.


This article analyses the concept of psycholinguistic units and the so-called future model and their application in teaching foreign languages. The study of issues such as support in the native language of a foreign languages student and processes for generating discourse reveal the importance of translation in learning a second language. The data provided by the research of certain psycholinguistic aspects (such as psycholinguistic units) in the translation process are found to be essential and of great use when establishing a foreign language teaching methodology.
