Part of the abstract:
In the present paper, we aim at presenting the main functionalities of the two platforms and introducing several research-based teaching models which make use of the ROGER and EXPRES corpora and platforms to facilitate academic writing learning. We also showcase video and text tutorials uploaded on the platforms created with the purpose of popularizing the use of authentic data (mother tongue and English L2, learner and expert) for the design and implementation of corpus-based academic writing teaching activities.
