‘Using corpora to teach sociolinguistics’ at the TaLC conference in Cambridge

Last week, the Faculty of Education, The University of Cambridge hosted 13th Teaching and Language Corpora Conference. This wonderful event brought together researchers and practitioners interested in different applications of corpus techniques in the classroom.

Dana Gablasova and I with the help of Irene Marin Cervantes and Tanjun Liu gave a practical workshop introducing the idea of sociolinguistic variation in English language teaching in both A level English language classes as well as in EFL/ESL classes.

This blogpost shows a few snapshots from the workshop as well as an unedited video showing 15 min introduction to the workshop plus the workshop materials in pdf.
