This chapter focuses on the different ways in which spoken learner corpora can contribute to language pedagogy. The chapter first offers a description of typical properties of spoken learner corpora, highlighting the challenges in the development of these resources. Next, the chapter focuses on the current trends in the integration of spoken learner corpora in language teaching, considering both the indirect use of these resources to inform curriculum design and the development of reference materials as well as the use in which learners work directly with language from these corpora. Both of these approaches are demonstrated on examples from recent practice. Finally, challenges present when integrating evidence from spoken learner corpora into language teaching are identified and possible solutions are proposed. The chapter concludes with recommendations for researchers and practitioners interested in implementing these corpora in language teaching.
