Hiroshima JALT:

Corpling: A More Efficient Approach to the Teaching and Learning of Vocabulary

Date: Sunday, July 18th, 2010 Time: 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Speaker: Warren Tang (various schools) and Simon Fraser (Hiroshima University)

Corpus linguistics (corpling) is one of the most powerful tools available to language teachers today. By using simple software programs, teachers can create better curricula and help students learn vocabulary systematically and efficiently. First, Warren Tang will explain the basics of corpling, and introduce user-friendly programs such as Antconc. Then, Simon Fraser will show how corpling can be helpful in setting vocabulary-learning goals for learners of specialized language.
