VERY IMPORTANT SPEAKING PATTERNS and SPEAKING PRACTICE
SPEAKING ALOUD GROUPS OF WORDS THAT ARE COMMONLY USED TOGETHER (sometimes called collocations) helps you speak more smoothly and naturally and builds your communication skills more quickly.
Examples of common collocations:
- take blood
- give an injection
- get an injection
- do a biopsy
- drain an abscess
Throughout this module, these groups of words (or collocations) are often underlined
English speakers also TIE WORDS TOGETHER so the end of one word runs into the start of the next.
- insert a needle = in-serta-nee-dul
- set up an IV = seh–tup-pan-I-V
Practice by SAYING THESE GROUPS OF WORDS ALOUD, running the words together until they flow as smoothly and naturally as one expression. This helps condition you to speak more fluently.
