Learner Corpora Made Easy!

Learner corpora are collections of student-produced text that expand the teacher's toolbox through searching large amounts of text in a short amount of time.

Not only can gathering learner corpora advance our knowlege of interlanguage characteristics, but it can help bear out or challenge teacher intuitions about learner needs using authentic learner data.

This site provides easy-to-follow step-by-step instructions for busy teachers who are interested in creating learner corpora, but don't know where to begin.

We hope you find it useful and that we share our data as a community to further our collective understanding of how language is used.
