    What I learned:

    1.       The negative connotation of ensued

    2.       The websites providing general tutorials on corpora and language teaching

    3.       Rather than presenting corpora and risk spinning off on a tangent, taking too long etc. presenting ‘a useful website’ with a set of step by step instructions of what to click and what to enter to find out X


    What I found interesting

    1.       I liked the concrete examples the article provided about creating supporting language exercises

    2.       I appreciated the acknowledgement of practicalities getting in the way of using corpora and the advice regarding how to overcome these.


    One thing I am still not sure about

    I don’t know how to use COCA – I would like to learn this to then incorporate it into my teaching
