Why you should learn collocations❓Hmm
⭕ Proper use of collocations makes your speech and writing more natural. You say ❗Do me a favour, ⚠️ NOT me a favour
⭕ Gives you more freedom to paraphrase your ideas correctly. ❗ to get a job, ❗to find a job, ❗to look for a job
⭕ Collocations are tough to guess if you don’t know them. It takes a very developed “feel” of the language to guess them correctly
