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:
- flare up of allergies (or symptoms)
- find out information (about something)
- get over the ‘flu (an illness)
English speakers tie words together so the end of one word runs into the start of the next.
Examples of tying sounds together:
- flare up of = fla’rupof
- find out = fin’dout
- get over = ge’tover
Practice saying word groups aloud, running them together until they flow as one expression.
