We would like to invite you to spend a few minutes to evaluate our CAP website via the following link:
This website aims to:
Introduce a corpus linguistic approach to both pre- and in-service teachers as a framework for understanding learners’ language and as a practical guidance for solving specific teaching difficulties.
Develop the corpus literacy of pre- and in-service teachers by helping them explore new ways of English language teaching and equip them with skills and tools to develop their own corpus-based teaching/learning materials.
Develop a teacher training programme using flipped learning enhanced by mobile technologies to motivate and engage pre- and in-service teachers’ in learning and experimenting with a corpus-based approach to language teaching and learning.
Develop corpus-based teaching & learning materials for pre- and in-service teachers.
Disseminate the knowledge and corpus-based approach to pre- and in-service teachers.
Encourage EdUHK students’ integration into regional education communities by enriching their learning experience outside the Hong Kong context.
This site also serves as a platform where teachers can share their valuable insights and disseminate good practices of corpus-based teaching and learning approach to others who are interested in the corpus-based language pedagogy.

I think it's interesting and it really can motivate us and
develop our thinking and creativity.
The learning activities provided are really practical
and we'll probably use the methods in our class.
It's good to learn about the corpus resources.
I must say it is worth attending. I've learned a new way of vocabulary teaching.
The course arrangement is great. Very systematic and the task practices
are very useful. They gave me lots of ideas to design my lesson exercises. Thanks a lot.
The teaching method is innovative and sounds useful, but it is also challenging.
Thank you for organising the workshop.
This course gives me plenty of ideas for implementing online-aided teaching tools.
Pupils would like to use these tools for self-study and self-discovery in a student-centered classroom.
Thanks. Hope there will be more workshops in the future.
The workshop gives me a new way to teach vocabulary! I love this workshop! Thank you!
The teaching method is innovative and sounds useful.
