Yanjuan HUO


It is known to us that writing, a fundamental part of language learning skills, is a crucial part in language output. This paper, based on Chinese Learner English Corpus (CLEC) , aims to discuss the effect of application of corpus to China’s English writing education. Moreover, by using some real teaching examples, the present study is intended to illustate the advantages of corpus as a strategy to improve English as foreign language learning in China.
