The ROGER and CODHUS team members were present at the EUROCALL 2022 Conference, held on 16–19 August 2022 as a fully online event. Alexandru Oravițan, Mădălina Chitez, Loredana Bercuci and Roxana Rogobete delivered the paper titled A Teacher’s Guide to Using Corpora to Improve Learner Academic Writing: Bilingual Corpus Applications.

Abstract: Learner academic corpora provide a practical resource for students, particularly in assimilating academic writing practices. One such corpus is the newly available ROGER (Corpus of Romanian Academic Genres), a bilingual comparable corpus containing learner discipline-specific writing data in Romanian L1 and English L2. This presentation aims to illustrate a series of academic writing teaching practices based on using the ROGER platform (launched in May 2022) by showcasing the benefits of various bilingual corpus applications. This presentation serves as a pedagogical model to be applied within a research-based academic writing classroom setting.

Keywords: academic writing, bilingual corpus, corpus-based teaching, learner corpora.
