Abstract
This paper reviews the common mistakes in Chinese students’ English writing and explores different categories of corpora and their possible application in language teaching. Based on the recent studies, the author finds that corpus-aided teaching has never been attached due importance in real teaching activities. It is suggested that future language writing teaching be conducted in three aspects: teacher-prepared exercise, corpus-aided writing process, and corpus-aided evaluation. Furthermore, the problems in corpus-aided teaching are analyzed to offer reference for further study in this field.
