    Corpus-Informed Content

    The course is also informed by the Cambridge English Corpus, a multi-billion word collection of contemporary English. This means we can:

    - identify words and phrases that occur most frequently - these are words that learners need to know.
    - look at word patterns and make sure we teach the most useful phrases and collocates.
    - make sure our materials contain appropriate content for a particular level or exam.
