Key features

Collocations are the key to fluent English. Learning words on their own may enable students to communicate, but to sound natural, students must learn what words typically go together.


Using Collocations helps students improve the way they use the words they already know. Comprising twenty-four units and six review sections, collocations are first presented in simple exercises. Students go on to understand and use the collocations with confidence in a variety of contexts.


Using Collocations puts an emphasis on learning to use collocations appropriately. Collocations are always presented in typical contexts, and information on formality or informality is included. Exercises include working on a range of text types from tweets to emails, postcards to letters and adverts to newspaper articles. Examples of conversational English are also included with texts recorded on Audio CD, which allow students to notice features of stress and intonation.
