Word patterns and collocations – FREE PDF EXERCISES

Word patterns and the understanding of vocabulary and prepositions are fundamental in achieving accuracy in English. Take a look at 28. Vocabulary Tricks – Useful advice to learn new vocabulary

The best way to learn word patterns (meaning verbs + prepositions, adjectives + prepositions or nouns + prepositions) is to learn them as a short phrase instead of learning them on their own, for example:

depend on = I normally pass exams easilty, but it depends on the day

consist of = What does the course consist of exactly?

You should use word patterns in various different ways such as speaking, reading, writing and listening. It is very important to use them in contexts that you can remember. You should use MNEMONICS to help you recall them or even associate them with an image.

Here are some free PDF exercises for you to practice at home.
