    Book details


This book highlights the potential and the challenges of corpora in language education with a particular focus on the teacher's perspective. For this purpose, the study explores the relevance of the corpus approach to central paradigms underlying contemporary language education. Furthermore, a critical analysis investigates the persisting gap between research findings and their implementation in teaching practices. As a result, key factors in advancing the popularisation of corpora in language education are identified. A survey and a case study verify this gap and, importantly, underline the pivotal role of adequate teacher education if corpus-based language teaching is to make any significant impact on current teaching practices.

Yvonne Alexandra Breyer holds a PhD in Applied Linguistics from Macquarie University, Sydney (Australia) where she currently works in online education and the implementation of Learning Management Systems. Her research interests include corpora in language education, online education and electronic assessment.
