Summary/Abstract: Despite the growing number of books on how to use corpora in language teaching, little has been written about integrating corpus-based activities with the reality of the classroom. Practising teachers usually have a syllabus to follow and a set course book they must use, and there is often little room to stray away from that. So even if teachers have heard about corpora in teacher training programmes or elsewhere, there is no guarantee that they will actually use them in their teaching. The present paper focuses on how the direct use of corpora is relevant to and can be integrated into everyday language teaching, with many advantages for both teachers and learners.
