Catherine Richards Golini – ‘Lexical bundles in our ESP classes: extracting and teaching bundles from DIY corpora’

12 September 2019, 5 pm 

This webinar guides participants through the simple steps needed to build a small-scale, specialised corpus using SketchEngine, a user-friendly, online corpus programme, in order to identify and extract 4-word lexical bundles. Once extracted, this webinar will present approaches to the categorisation of the bundles and some of the ways we can work with lexical bundles in our ESP and EAP classes.
