Corpus-based approaches to language testing
The ESRC Centre for Corpus Approaches to Social Science (CASS), Lancaster University is organising a free half-day workshop on corpus-based approaches to language testing. The event offers a combination of two lectures and a practical session. The practical session focuses on major corpus techniques used in language assessment research and practice. The workshop is suitable for students, researchers and practitioners interested in language assessment, applied linguistics and corpus methods. No prior knowledge of corpus linguistics is required. We are delighted that Dr Shelley Staples from the University of Arizona accepted the invitation to give a guest lecture at the event.
Follow the event on Twitter from 12.00 UK time.
