This panel will provide a pedagogical model that bridges theory, research, and classroom teaching and learning by showing how the usage-based constructionist approach as a theoretical framework together with corpus-based data analysis of everyday language uses of the challenging structure involving 了 le can contribute to the conception and execution of a principled pedagogical approach to grammar teaching and learning in CSL/CFL. In doing so, it will provide useful and workable strategies for CSL/CFL teachers to apply not just in the teaching of le, but also other structures in Chinese.
