  • ICE (the International Corpus of English) incorporates ICLE, the International Corpus of Learner English. This corpus samples the English used by advanced learners from ten different language backgrounds - French, Dutch, German, Spanish, Swedish, Finnish, Czech, Polish, Russian, Japanese, and Chinese. The International Corpus of Learner English (ICLE) was compiled to fill this gap. Centralised at the University of Louvain, Belgium, it has been collected in collaboration with several universities. The corpus, which now stands at 1 million+ words, is made up of argumentative essays written by university students of English from the mother tongue backgrounds.
