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:

  • take blood
  • do a biopsy
  • drain an abscess

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

Examples of tying sounds together:

  • insert a needle = in-serta-nee-dul
  • set up an IV = seh–tup-pan-I-V

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