Corpus Resources for Language Teaching
This page lists different resources available online to create corpus-based or corpus-informed teaching materials for the EFL/ESL classroom. The first links are examples of materials developed by corpus research centers around the world and the second set of links are corpus tools created for English Teachers.
This is a project from Lancaster University that brings together corpus linguistics, applied linguistics, teachers and material writers to develop teaching materials and online platforms that incorporate corpus-based findings as well as direct access to corpora to teach about how English is used in real life situations. The materials were developed both for A-level English Language classes as well as for teaching English as a foreign/second language classes.
