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:

  • rule out diabetes (an illness)
  • sounds like an allergy (a diagnosis)
  • suggests that you have (+ diagnosis)

English speakers tie words together so the end of one word runs into the start of the next.

Examples of tying sounds together:

  • rule out = rul’out
  • sounds likes = souns’like

Practice saying word groups aloud, running them together until they flow as one expression.
