This grant develops knowledge transfer and impact-generating activities from the research team's previous research on the changing English language. Working with teachers of GCSE and GCE A level English language, an online Databank of Spoken English will be compiled, consisting of sound clips with written transcripts.

The Databank will also contain suggested classroom activities on spoken English, related to the sound clips, with accompanying teacher notes. In addition, the research team will produce an online Research Digest that will exchange information on recent academic research relevant to English Language teaching with teachers and other individuals (including members of the general public) who are interested in language use.
