With the Oxford Collocations Dictionary, students learn the most frequently used word combinations in British and American English. The dictionary also guides them to the right combination for their context. The two-year app access includes the complete dictionary.
The Oxford Collocations Dictionary improves students' accuracy by showing them the words that work together in both British and American English. Using it develops a better awareness of which words go together and helps students sound more natural.
The dictionary is an essential tool for students preparing for the Cambridge ESOL First Certificate or Proficiency Exam, IELTS, or studying other subjects in English which require writing in English e.g. reports for a science subject, economics.
Students can look up a word they know and find which words are used with it. Each entry is organized around a word and its collocates. Students can also look up the meaning of any unfamiliar words in the app.
25 usage notes show students collocations shared by sets of words such as seasons, currencies, and languages. Exercises in the 16-page photocopiable Study section put the collocations into practice, helping students to internalise them.
