English Collocations In Use Advanced

English Collocations in Use Advanced should help advanced learners acquire the knowledge they need about English collocations and enjoy themselves along the way. Besides its more obvious use as a classroom text, the book could also be used as reference when students are writing their university essays and research reports and want to be in the know.

Collocations are combinations of words which frequently appear together. This book contains explanations and practice of English collocations for advanced-level (C1 to C2) learners of English. Perfect for both self-study and classroom activities. Learn collocations in context, with lots of different topics, including 'Writing essays, assignments and reports'. Be confident about what you are learning, thanks to Cambridge research into how English is really spoken and written, and get better at studying by yourself, with study tips and follow-up activities. This book is also perfect for preparing for Cambridge exams and IELTS, which often test knowledge of collocations.

This book is the perfect tool to help intermediate to advanced students learn the more technical aspects of the English language. Students will work on a number of activities that will teach them common informal language, prepositional phrases, when to use have and get, and extra help on literal translation.

If you are a teacher, this is a great book to assign to students who have reached a certain threshold or plateau. Whenever we study anything, we usually peak out and it becomes a lot more difficult to rise to the next level. English Collocations in Use can help your intermediate and advanced students fix those subtle mistakes in order to make him/her a much better English speaker. These are the kind of things that a student really needs to study so that they will no longer continue to make the same mistake without being aware of doing it.

Collocations are combinations of words which frequently appear together. Learning about collocations means understanding how words work together for fluent and natural English, and helps students speak and write in a more natural and accurate way.

The English Collocation in Use books, available in two levels, provide explanations and practice of English collocations for intermediate (B1-B2) and advanced (C1-C2) learners of English. The books have been revised and updated for this second edition, and two units per level have been added.

The aim of the study was to compare the use of formulaic language, here called multiword structures, in advanced L2 English speech of two Swedish groups with a group of first language (L1) speakers of English. One Swedish group was resident in London and one in Stockholm, thus implying different degrees of exposure to English. Three categories, notably multiword phrases, multiword utterances and metalinguistic multiword structures, were investigated by comparing quantity and distribution. The groups completed two oral tasks, a role play and a retelling task. The results of the Swedish group resident in London were similar to the L1 English group on all measurements of multiword structures in the role play. In the retelling task multiword phrases were significantly fewer in both second language (L2) groups compared to the L1 English group, although there were L2 individuals within the L1 speaker range. Another question concerned the extent to which the three groups used multiword structures which were equivalents, i.e. transferable between English and Swedish. In the retelling task both Swedish groups produced significantly more equivalents than the L1 speakers. The implications of these findings are discussed.

Formulaic language cuts across most languages (Buerki 2020). According to Ellis (2006) formulaic language plays a vital role for acquisition, proficiency and idiomaticity in both L1 and L2. In the present study instantiations of formulaic language are called multiword structures (henceforth MWSs).[
