Concordances in the ELT classroom

Concordances in the ELT classroom

How can we achieve the goal of shifting the classroom focus from teacher to learner? In this workshop, we will consider the potential for using corpora in the ELT classroom to facilitate learner autonomy. Specifically, we will look at how concordances may be used to help learners identify collocations, grammatical patterns and semantic prosody. The session will include user friendly concordance ideas to take away and will hopefully be beneficial to both teachers and learners.
