What is a collocation?
A collocation is a term used to describe common and regular word combinations in English. While these words that go together sound natural to native speakers, students of English often struggle to make sense of them. Fear no more!
You are going to learn 50 collocations to help you on English examinations, at the office, or everyday life while using English to communicate with others. Using collocations demonstrates your deep understanding of the language and culture. When you learn a language, you are immersed in that culture and you naturally learn more about its people.
Usage of collocations by native speakers is both common and predictable. In time, using this book, you too will be able to recognize collocations in texts, conversations with friends and colleagues, and while watching movies or listening to the radio. Study these 50 collocations every day and using collocations will become second nature.
How to study collocations
Learning collocations expands your English vocabulary. Not only can you communicate your ideas and thought more precisely, you can liven up your writing by adding collocations for variety. Vivid writing makes your arguments more compelling and therefore more persuasive. For example, instead of just writing disappointed, write instead bitterly disappointed to make your point finer and create an image in the mind of the reader.
