This is a very thorough module on using corpus linguistics in the classroom.  It is about 50 pages worth of materials. A great introduction or review of the uses of corpora, resources and related research.

Undated module on Graham Davies' legacy website (most recent reference 2011, the majority from the 1990s).  The authors recommend printing and reading the 50+ pages of information, then come back to the webpage to use the links to complete the activities.

The word lists can be found elsewhere but the highlighter tools and gap-fill maker are unique tools from Nottingham.

Nice post on using corpora for ELT without being a corpus linguist or a tech whiz.

A nice introduction to corpora and concordance tools and how they are useful in teaching languages and, by extension, translation.

Corpus-aided language learning

Numerous corpus linguists (for example Gavioli and Aston 2001) have pointed out that learning activities centred on analysing corpus data are consistent with current principles of language-learning theory, that is students develop more autonomy when they receive guidance about how to observe language and make generalizations.
