What should a learners’ grammar for B1/B2 learners include? Michael McCarthy (University of Nottingham, UK), Anne O'Keeffe (MIC, University of Limerick, Ireland) & Geraldine Mark We consider what a grammar at CEFR B1/B2 level should include, based on corpus evidence. We show how learner corpora can be used to track the emergence of grammatical features among B1 and B2 learners, how error-information can be interpreted and how register differences can be highlighted (e.g. speech vs. writing) to produce a useful reference grammar for upper-intermediate students.
