12th Teaching and Language Corpora Conference
TaLC 12 was held from 20 to 23 July 2016 at Justus Liebig University Giessen.
- About the conference
Since the first meeting in 1994, the TaLC conferences have served as a forum for teachers, researchers and software developers to share their ideas on how corpus resources and tools for analysis can assist in language teaching. They aim to promote classroom applications of language corpora, data-driven learning, as well as the creation of corpus-informed teaching materials, and foster discussion between practitioners and theorists from all over the world.
