ABSTRACT
This paper presents two different experimental applications of corpora through a common corpus-based approach, based on the authors’ experiences respectively in EFL secondary and ESP tertiary settings. The corpus-based approach was not meant to replace other teaching methodologies, but to experiment opportunities of narrowing learners’ lexical competence-performance gap through their active involvement in corpora-designed activities.
