Pre-recorded Video
Time not set

Corpus-based tools can help L2 users improve their vocabulary knowledge by providing real-world examples and context which can enable them to discover facts and notice patterns by themselves. The YouTube based tool, Youglish, and the language learner version of the Sketch Engine corpus, SKEll will be reviewed, considering strengths and limitations. In addition, how the tools can be presented to students and their potential benefits for use in writing courses will be discussed.
