What can the Corpus do for me?
Using the Corpus to study how people really use English today, Cambridge authors can ensure that all language in our publications is natural, accurate and up-to-date.
Cambridge ELT materials teach English as it's actually written and spoken.
From newspapers to phone calls, books to business meetings, the Corpus provides authentic, interesting and relevant examples that show language from all aspects of life.
Cambridge materials don't waste your time teaching vocabulary that's only rarely used.
From the Corpus, we select the most useful, common words and phrases for a topic or level.
So if a phrase is important, it will be in the book! And if it's hardly ever used, we won't take up your precious teaching time with it.
All learners make mistakes, but there are some areas of English which are particularly tricky. Using the Cambridge Learner Corpus, we can see where learners have most difficulty.
Thanks to the Cambridge Learner Corpus, we can produce materials which address the problems of your particular student group.
Our products help you spend time wisely, tackling these areas and providing the extra help students need.
Studying real-life conversations in the Cambridge English Corpus mean that Cambridge authors can focus on commonly used expressions and fillers to help learners communicate with confidence.
Spoken English can be compared with written English, allowing authors to highlight words that are particularly important in conversation.
Speaking and listening strategies are essential to effective communication.
