Corpus research

I’ve carried out extensive research using the Cambridge Learner Corpus to feed into a variety of ELT projects for Cambridge English over the years.

I’ve carried out research and produced reports for authors on projects including:

  • Objective PET
  • Objective First
  • Objective IELTS
  • Complete CAE
  • IELTS Trainer
  • English 365
  • Vocabulary in Practice
  • Business Benchmark
  • the Common Mistakes at … series

I’ve also both carried out research and written common error notes and activities for a number of books, both for the international market and for specific local markets. I’ve worked especially with CUP Spain to research errors typical of Spanish speakers to inform coursebooks aimed at the Spanish market:

  • English in Mind (international editions)
  • English in Mind (English for Spanish Speakers editions)
  • Interactive (ESS)
  • Empower (ESS; levels A2, B1 & C1)
  • Cambridge Learner’s Dictionary
