The tenth English Profile Seminar will take place on Friday 5 February 2016. We'll be exploring how learner corpora can be used to understand level and progression.

We are delighted to announce a range of talks from academics based at Cambridge and beyond, including Sylviane Granger, Philip Durrant, Susan Hunston, Vaclav Brezina and others.

We will post more information on the English Profile web site in due course:

We are also pleased to announce the release of a subset of the Cambridge Learner Corpus, which will provide a rich resource for academics interested in learner exam writing across a range different levels and language backgrounds. More information about this exciting development will be presented at the seminar.

We look forward to seeing you in February.

All best wishes

The English Profile Team
