About collocations

Tell me who you go with and I'll tell you who you are

Collocations are very common in English, and learning them is important. A collocation is two or more words that often go together, like "hard work" or "make a mistake". Collocations sound "right" or "natural" to native speakers, so the more collocations you know and use, the more natural your English will sound.
