I would like to know how to express "to tend take on sth" How could I make better my following tranlation attempt or is it completely wrong?

Most language teachers currently tend to take on the eclectic approach to language teaching partly.

Die meisten Sprachlehrer übernehmen/annehmen derzeit eher zum Teil/teilweise auf die eklektische Ansatz zur Sprachunterricht.

1 Answer 1


To tend can be translated as either tendieren or neigen:

Die meisten Sprachlehrer tendieren/neigen dazu, einen eklektischen Ansatz für den Sprachenunterricht zu verfolgen.

  • How do you find my second attempt: "Sprachlehrer neigen das Übernehmen, um eklektischen Ansatz zum Sprachunterricht." was it work?
