One of the most common questions that students ask me is:
“How can I speak English more like a native speaker?”
Marcos from Brazil writes: “I translate in my head from my native language to English… but then my sentences are not correct, or not natural. Can you help me solve this problem?”
One thing that can really help you speak English more fluently is learning collocations. Collocations are the typical or common combinations of words we use together.
Here are some simple examples: we say "take a picture" and not "do a picture" or "make a picture." We say "a quick shower" and not "a fast shower."
When you make mistakes with collocations, the other person will usually understand you – but your English won’t sound “natural” – because it’s different from the way a native speaker would say it.
So if you want to improve your fluency and talk more like a native English speaker, you’ll love my e-book, 1000 English Collocations in 10 Minutes a Day.
This book will teach you typical collocations, organized into 50 topics. There’s no need to spend hours trying to memorize long lists of words and phrases. Each lesson takes just 10 minutes:
– 5 minutes to read the lesson
– 5 minutes to do the quiz and practice the expressions you learned
It makes it easy for you to improve your English every day, even if you have little time to study.
