    The first reading was a real eyeopener. Never thought that learner corpus data existed. Thinking about it, learner corpus should inform EAP materials and I’m sure it does to some extent, but apparently, not enough – or at least that was the situation in 2007 when the article was written. I’m curious if/how this has changed – I’ll be looking out for this in the course books I’m using with my ss. This article has made me aware that it is important to choose EAP materials that are informed by learner corpus data.
