Business Collocations

It is important not only to learn vocabaulary but also to understand which words are commonly used together. We call this collocation. For example we say “to drive a car, a bus a taxi” etc but we do not say “to drive a bicycle”. The verb that collocates with bicycle is “ride”.

Use the flashcards to learn so common business collocations. If you don’t understand any of the words, type the complete phrase in Google and have a look at the results. You will understand more easily when you see the words in context.
