Abstract

In the past decade, the use of corpora and computational tools in language education has played a crucial and critical role in innovations in language education. The current paper provides a survey of the current state of second language learner corpora in East Asia. Four types of learner corpus from four regions in East Asia are introduced, with further details on the design and compilation of each corpus, as well as extended research and applications based on each corpus. We also provide recommendations on best practices in implementing learner corpus data in language teaching and learning, and laying out a roadmap for future development and synergy among second language learner corpora with different first language speakers in East Asia.
