Indeed, the use of translation has been perceived differently and it has been the object of criticism and controversy in foreign language teaching. The present paper aims at investigating the contribution of translation as a pedagogical tool in foreign language classes by suggesting that there is a strong relationship between translation and foreign language learning in the sense that it helps learners acquire, develop and further strengthen their knowledge and competences in a foreign language. Αfter providing readers with a description of translation as a multidimensional activity, a main distinction is made between three types of teaching activities which all involve translation but they are used in different contexts: language teaching, translation teaching and translator training. Afterwards, the present research focuses on the basic arguments for and against the use of translation in language teaching, followed by some proposals so that translation can be effectively incorporated into a foreign language class. The main conclusion is that translation should be thought of as a challenging, supporting and creative learning activity to foreign language learning that would help students to further develop their language competences.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; </em></strong></p> Saridaki Saridaki Copyright (c) 2023 Afak for Sciences 2023-09-17 2023-09-17 8 03 The impact of covid-19 pandemic on the real estate industry <p>This paper studies the impact of the covid-19 pandemic on the real estate market. In order to examine this impact, we will use the event study methodology to examine how the stock prices of real estate companies behaved following the covid-19 outbreak. This can be done by examining the abnormal returns (ARs) and the Cumulative Abnormal Returns (CARs) and the Cumulative Average Abnormal Returns (CAARs). The sample that will be used to conduct the study contains 5 major real estate companies; Segro plc, Land Securities plc, Unite Group plc, British Land Company plc, Derwent London plc. The event window will be 58 days following the outbreak of the covid-19. The findings show negative short term CAARs, in which the CARs of the companies ranged from -0.79% to -4.10%, then followed by a small recovery with the CARs ranging from 2.34% to 3.29%. After that, significant negative CAARs were reported followed by another recovery with the CARs within the range of [-10.35, -21.32%] and [5.99%, 8.12%] respectively. These findings indicate that the covid-19 pandemic had a small short-term negative impact followed by a bigger impact in the next few weeks, then the real estate stock prices stabilise after that returning to he pre-covid levels.</p> Bouamara Zakaria Jörg-Martin Ries Copyright (c) 2023 Afak for Sciences 2023-09-17 2023-09-17 8 03 Request for offers in accordance with what is included in the Tunisian and Algerian law <p>Concluding a public deal is a legal process that takes place according to the rules of free competition and is characterized by the multiplicity and different methods adopted for selecting the contractor with the public purchaser, and the principle is that the administration is free to choose the method of contracting unless the law imposes on it a specific method.

It has only become widespread internationally in the last twenty years. The startup is a company that has been recently created and that evolves in the sector of new technologies with high growth potential. It is a company like no other, it is a new innovative company with a high growth potential and speculation on its future value. A start-up is different from a classic company. They are two structures that do not function in the same way, that do not have the same dynamics nor the same objectives. The purpose of this study is to clarify this new concept, but also the main terms that revolve around it, as well as to determine the difference between a start-up and a traditional company.</em></p> <p><em>&nbsp;A traditional company is a structure designed to design, manufacture and market products. The fundamental difference is that a company is organized to optimize and execute a Business model that works, while a startup is organized to find one</em></p> Malika Beggah Copyright (c) 2023 Afak for Sciences 2023-09-18 2023-09-18 8 03 The mental health of students <p><a href="çais/Health">Health</a> <a href="çais/is">is</a> <a href="çais/a">a</a> <a href="çais/key">key</a> <a href="çais/determinant">determinant</a> <a href="çais/of">of</a> <a href="çais/sustainable">sustainable</a> <a href="çais/development">development</a>. <a href="çais/Thus">Thus</a>, <a href="çais/mental">mental</a> <a href="çais/health">health</a> <a href="çais/is">is</a> <a href="çais/an">an</a> <a href="çais/indicator">indicator</a> <a href="çais/of">of</a> <a href="çais/the">the</a> <a href="çais/health">health</a> <a href="çais/status">status</a> <a href="çais/of">of</a> <a href="çais/a">a</a> <a href="çais/population">population</a> <a href="çais/as">as</a> <a href="çais/a">a</a> <a href="çais/whole">whole</a>, <a href="çais/including">including</a> <a href="çais/that">that</a> <a href="çais/of">of</a> <a href="çais/the">the</a> <a href="çais/student">student</a> <a href="çais/community">community</a>. <a href="çais/Algeria">Algeria</a>, <a href="çais/like">like</a> <a href="çais/other">other</a> <a href="çais/countries">countries</a>, <a href="çais/is">is</a> <a href="çais/increasingly">increasingly</a> <a href="çais/concerned">concerned</a> <a href="çais/about">about</a> <a href="çais/the">the</a> <a href="çais/well-being">well-being</a> <a href="çais/of">of</a> <a href="çais/students">students</a>, <a href="çais/who">who</a>, <a href="çais/in">in</a> <a href="çais/order">order</a> <a href="çais/to">to</a> <a href="çais/be">be</a> <a href="çais/involved">involved</a> <a href="çais/in">in</a> <a href="çais/development">development</a>, <a href="çais/must">must</a> <a href="çais/enjoy">enjoy</a> <a href="çais/good">good</a> <a href="çais/mental">mental</a> <a href="çais/health">health</a>. <a href="çais/The">The</a> <a href="çais/objective">objective</a> <a href="çais/of">of</a> <a href="çais/this">this</a> <a href="çais/article">article</a> <a href="çais/is">is</a> <a href="çais/to">to</a> <a href="çais/take">take</a> <a href="çais/stock">stock</a> by proposing a non-exhaustive review of the literature and returning <a href="çais/of">of</a> <a href="çais/Algeria's">Algeria's</a> <a href="çais/efforts">efforts</a> <a href="çais/in">in</a> <a href="çais/favour">favour</a> <a href="çais/of">of</a> <a href="çais/students'">students'</a>; <a href="çais/mental">mental</a> <a href="çais/health">health</a>, <a href="çais/in">in</a> <a href="çais/particular">particular</a> <a href="çais/by">by</a> <a href="çais/questioning">questioning</a> <a href="çais/official">official</a> <a href="çais/texts">texts</a> <a href="çais/on">on</a> <a href="çais/this">this</a> <a href="çais/subject">subject</a>, <a href="çais/with">with</a> <a href="çais/regard">regard</a> <a href="çais/to">to</a> <a href="çais/the">the</a> <a href="çais/crucial">crucial</a> <a href="çais/role">role</a> <a href="çais/of">of</a> <a href="çais/students">students</a> <a href="çais/in">in</a> <a href="çais/achieving">achieving</a> <a href="çais/development">development</a>.</p> Lamia Benamsili Bachir Haderbache Copyright (c) 2023 Afak for Sciences 2023-09-18 2023-09-18 8 03 Digital pedagogy in the development of the skill of reading comprehension.

The literary dimension is thus dissociated from the medium, and the benefits that it can bring in terms of reading are thus hidden.

It is indeed an approach that offers itself both as deepening and as reassessment: it is deepening because it points to the talkative subject in its conversion into a thinking subject; it is also re-evaluation because it authorizes signs to signify themselves differently. As a concretization of this innovative spirit shown by this approach, we will propose to seize the metadiscourse as a support for the study of the conceptual metaphor, and this through two main works that we take as fairly representative of the whole of the "esthetics". » metalinguistics; it is therefore Grammar Methodology of French1 and Dictionary of Linguistics2. At first, we will be very tempted by the definitional part where the main concepts relating to the conceptual metaphor will be exposed. In a second moment, we will try to examine the notion of spatialization which presides over a large number of metadisursive concepts. We intend to demonstrate, in the last part, how the human mind assigns itself its own bodily experience, and thereby ontological, as the foundation of the (meta)discursive metaphor.</p> Hamdi Walid Copyright (c) 2023 Afak for Sciences 2023-09-18 2023-09-18 8 03 The place of the receiver in the discourse of the press Tunisia: Le temps 2011 <p>En menant notre recherche de doctorat sur la question de l’objectivité dans le discours dela presse tunisienne, nous avons constaté que l’un des phénomènes énonciatifs les plus saillants dans la presse fut la présence de la fonction conative du langage. Toutefois, cettequestion n’était pas suffisamment traitée. Il nous incombe dans le cadre de cet article de revenir sur ce point, et ce en interrogeant la place du lecteur dans le discours de la presse tunisienne d’expression française2. Cela nous amène à analyser le contrat de lecture (Véron, 1983) établi entre le journal le Temps et ses lecteurs. Ce contrat semble donner lieu à un certain rapport d’interlocution et mérite une attention particulière dans lamesure où on assiste à un changement des modalités énonciatives dans le journal.

But it is clear that rumors and similar phenomena such as disinformation, fake news have spread enormously and are thriving more and more, hence the difficulty of distinguishing true from false in a very connected world where news go fast; especially that certain erroneous information conveyed can have negative repercussions, even dangerous for the populations and even for a country. Based on a corpus relating to recent events in Côte d'Ivoire, the aim will be to see the factors that make rumors attractive and to identify their implications.

To demonstrate this, we dwell on a corpus of editorials from Cameroon Radio Television (Crtv). The demonstration is based on the achievements of discourse analysis, both argumentative and communicational. In turn, therefore, and gradually, the article opens with a methodological and theoretical presentation (1), the main objects of which oscillate between definition of the corpus, presentation of the field of research and conceptualization of the notion of identity. Much later, we will question the content of the identity discourse (2), which will be broken down into journalist identities (2.1.), collective identities (2.2.) and affirmation of a national identity (2.3.).</p> Maїoua Maїoua Jean Clément Copyright (c) 2023 Afak for Sciences 2023-09-22 2023-09-22 8 03 Legal nature of documentary credit in Algerian legislation <p>The documentary credit agreement plays its role in facilitating international foreign trade operations, particularly maritime trade, in addition to the credit process obtained from the issuing bank, and taking into account the multiplicity of actors in the documentary credit process, since this mechanism is governed by international rules that are considered a model to be followed for the adoption of national texts in the context of the implementation of contracts. types, and the system of united international rules and customs, thus constitutes the status of documentary credit as a means of ensuring the performance of obligations arising from the contract of international commercial transactions.</p> KHOUATRA Samia Copyright (c) 2023 Afak for Sciences 2023-09-22 2023-09-22 8 03 The role of school sport in reducing school violence among middle school <p>The purpose of this study is to identify the role of school sports in detecting verbal and physical violence with students of the fourth year, Where the study was conducted on a sample of 25 professors, Professor of physical education study averages activists, The descriptive approach has also been distributed through Esteban composed of twenty (20), have been using spss program 22 to analyze survey results.

It goes without saying that philosophy enables children and adolescents to experience a new way of acting and interacting with other children and the teacher by valuing dialogue, listening and respect for others.
