The authors report on a three-week pedagogical intervention for the teaching of German modal particles, which draws on the methodologies of contrastive learner corpus analysis and data-driven learning. The intervention was administered in the context of a German-American telecollaborative partnership, an electronically mediated learning configuration in which geographically dispersed learners in parallel language classes use Internet communication tools in order to interact with one another on the completion of a variety of teacher-guided projects.
