~ Vocabulary versus Collocations ~

Notes: Collocations are words that occur in language in groups or chunks or phrases.

 

They occur more often than by chance. In other words, collocations are not random.

 

Idioms, sayings, compound nouns, and all types of phrases are examples of collocations.

 

It is possible to suggest that language is made up of structures and collocations.

 

Further, it is probable that studying collocations will improve your use of English.

 

Having said that, I suggest that each individual will have a unique approach to learning.

 

Yet, just studying vocabulary in isolation seems to be a limited approach. You be the judge.

 

 

Honor your mistakes, they will lead to learning...

Through this learning, more mistakes will be made…

Through this process, mistakes are no longer mistakes…

They become the act of learning.
