Center for Language Acquisition at the Pennsylvania State University

Workshop on Teaching with Language Corpora


A new workshop for language teachers will focus on:

 

"Creating Language Exercises with Corpora"

 

Wednesday, October 29, 2014

3:45-5:15 p.m.

105 Ferguson

 

This workshop will provide a hands-on experience of using language corpora--collections of authentic language use (e.g., CoCA, Corpus del Español, Russian National Corpus, Lextutor)--to create exercises and activities for the foreign language classroom.  Presenters will demonstrate the process of building student language exercises directly from corpus examples, and workshop participants will be assisted in creating exercises they can use to enhance their students' language learning.

 

Pre-registration for this workshop is requested by October 27, so that we may prepare corpus resources relevant to your language(s) of instruction.  Registration is available here.

 

The event is free and open to the public.  Light refreshments will be provided.
