FLUENCY with important speaking patterns
Speaking aloud common word groups (sometimes called collocations) helps you speak more smoothly and naturally.
In this module, these groups of words (collocations) are underlined. Examples of common collocations:
- control pain
- struggle with depression
- get a sprained ankle
Throughout this module, these groups of words (or collocations) are often underlined
English speakers tie words together so the end of one word runs into the start of the next.
Examples of tying sounds together:
- sprained ankle = sprain’dan-kle
Practice saying word groups aloud, running them together until they flow as one expression.
