Are you a researcher interested in finding out about the English language corpora at Cambridge University Press? The Press has a number of English language corpora that University of Cambridge researchers can access.

This workshop will give you an introduction to the corpora at the Press and give you some hands-on experience of working with the data. The main focus will be on the 30 million word English language learner corpus, which can provide unique insights into the nature of learner language. We'll work through some activities using the corpus analysis software Sketch Engine. We will look at the way this research can be used to inform the design of language learning materials and language teaching.

This workshop will be suitable for people who are new to corpus research or who are particularly interested in its application to language teaching and learning materials.

Please bring your own laptop to participate in the activities!
