Practical concordancing for upper-intermediate and advanced academic writing: Ready-to-use teaching and learning materials

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


This article is written within the framework of Researching EAP Practice. It is based on my practical experience of teaching English for Academic Purposes (EAP) to international students using concordancers. The aim of the paper is to share my experience of applying concordance-based teaching methods in everyday teaching and to initiate a discussion and exchange of ideas with other colleagues for developing and using them in classroom practice. I discuss concordance-based tasks in the light of both cognitive students’ progression and the changing role of teachers in delivering these tasks. The Appendices contain a step-by-step guide to using Lextutor Concordancer and 40 practical tasks that practitioners can use in their classroom practice.
