    Thank you for your thoughts @vera-t I think the third point you included is very important. We do not need to deliver an entire session using corpus tools. We can use corpus tools when planning lessons or developing materials e.g. a handout with concordance lines.

    Regarding the tools, there are a few tools out there (the Ant Conc software, LancsBox by Lancaster University, English-Corpora.org by Mark Davies, LexTutor, etc.), but we will be focussing on Sketch Engine by Adam Kilgarriff and gradually helping you feel confident in various concepts, methods and ways of using this data in your practices. We didn’t want to overwhelm teachers so we chose one tool (the most user-friendly IMHO) in order to explore its various functionalities.
