Hilde van Zeeland's insight:

Interesting - I think we all agree that the use of corpora can be great for a focus on form, though learners should be taught how to use this resource effectively.

Hilde van Zeeland's insight:

This new app users corpus linguistics to give users feedback on their writing. Writers can select a chunk of their text, activate the popover, and check the chunk against the Google Books database. Other useful options include seeing examples of their chunk in different contexts and finding out which word (or synonym of a word!) is mostly used in a selected context. Useful for any writing purpose, but particularly aimed at second language teachers and learners.
And it's free too!

Although this article doesn't focus on the usefulness for language learning and teaching, I can think of so many ways to use these audio-based techniques in the language classroom. Worth taking a look at for language teachers!

Looks interesting - In the long run, helping the language classroom is one of the main aims of applied linguistics research! I would like to see more efforts to apply our findings to the practical settings.
