Master the art of natural English with our British English Collocation Activities! Collocations are pairs or groups of words that are commonly used together and are essential for sounding like a native speaker. These activities will help you learn some of the most common collocations, and avoid mistakes that give away that you are not a native speaker. Collocations can be difficult to guess from the words alone, therefore, it's important to learn them individually. Our activities are designed to make it easy for you to improve your language skills and sound more natural. Start practicing today and take your English language proficiency to the next level.

Did you know that there are over 600,000 words in English? That's a lot of words, and far more than any human being could ever manage to learn. Even Shakespeare only used around 55,000 different words in all of his works. Mind you, he did actually invent quite a few of them. To get a good mastery of English, you do need to expand your vocabulary as much as possible. The more words you know, the better your English will be. The Activities here will help you to quickly develop your vocabulary.

A collocation is a pair of words or a group of words that are used together. Collocations sound natural to native English speakers, but students of English often make mistakes with collocations. You have to learn collocations because they are difficult to guess from the words alone. The verbs do and make are often confused by students, but these two verbs are used in many common everyday collocations. Many students, for instance, make mistakes when they say do mistakes. This lesson will help you to avoid making the same mistakes.
