Description This paper presents an interface of the Šolar corpus of young learner writing (Kosem, Rozman & Stritar 2011). The Šolar corpus was built within the Communication in Slovene project and contains texts of Slovene elementary and secondary school students, comprising nearly 1 million words. Although this is a corpus of L1 writing, it has been modelled after learner corpora and contains annotated student errors, as identified by their teachers, and teacher corrections. It was always envisaged that the corpus would be made available to teachers and publishers, but one of the main problems was that these target groups have little knowledge in the use of corpora. Thus, our aim was to design an interface that would be user-friendly and easy to use.
