A collocation is a pair or group of words that are often used together. For example, we say 'heavy rain', not 'strong rain' or 'hard rain'. 

You need to learn collocations because they will help you to speak and write English in a more natural and accurate way. People will probably understand what you mean if you say "there was very hard rain this morning", but your language might perhaps confuse. Did you mean that there was a lot of rain or perhaps that there was a hailstorm?

Praise and Testimonials

Being a subscriber of both the transcript and podcast, I'm able to listen with a transcript. If you want to improve your English, you will definitely love the Collocation of the Day!


It's a podcast with practical vocabulary and Kristian has a natural way of teaching. What's more, he goes the extra mile with the transcript in email format. I'm thrilled to bits!


When I hear a word I don’t understand, it takes me only a second to check the transcript and see the word explained in detail. The combo of podcast and transcript is terrific!


This podcast and transcript are super useful, because this combination is exactly what I need: I can listen, read and learn collocations that I didn't know. I’m a happy subscriber!
