Helping ESL Writers Through a Multimodal, Corpus-based, Online Grammar Resource

Volker Hegelheimer
Issued Date: 7 Aug 2014


Current approaches to language pedagogy recognize the fact that ESL learners need explicit help to improve the grammatical accuracy of their writing. This research investigates the utility of an online resource intended to improve advanced-level ESL learners' writing by increasing their grammatical awareness and ability to correct the grammatical errors in their own writing. This classroom-based study investigated nine learners' use of the resource through the use of questionnaires, interviews, records of software use, and analysis of learners' written products.
