Assunto:  help me with collocations?
 
Mensagem:  Joe,

I think that a mastery of collocations comes with practice, such as reading a lot of articles, books, news and magazine articles, and so forth.

In your case you need to steer your reading towards British English materials.

The more you read, and speak, the more you're going to get used to finding the right collocation.

There's no easy shortcut, unless one has a "photographic memory".

The rest of us, normal human beings, require a lot of repetition, practicing, etc.

Come back and stay with us in the forum, your English can grow a lot by actively attending this forum.
