Research output: Other contributionOther contributions

Abstract

Word knowledge and usage are more easily accessible through corpora than other traditional tools, such as dictionaries. This workshop will introduce some free online corpora to school teachers and provide guidance on how to explore corpus data and discover authentic use of vocabulary/collocations. Corpus-based vocabulary teaching materials/activities for both primary and secondary teachers are showcased. The design principles will also be unveiled.
