Collocations là cách kết hợp các từ với nhau thành các cụm từ theo thói quen của người bản ngữ. Collocation sẽ giúp bạn nói và viết tự nhiên bởi bạn không thể kết hợp tùy tiện các từ với nhau và nâng cao chất lượng của collocation góp phần tạo nên điểm số cho bài viết (tiêu chí Lexical Resource – Range of vocabulary). Nắm bắt được nhu cầu này, WISE Team đã tổng hợp và biên soạn 50 COLLOCATIONS FOR IELTS WRITING. Hy vọng sẽ giúp ích được cho các bạn trong quá trình ôn luyện IELTS
