Effects of Teaching Collocations on Academic Writing
Lexical knowledge is an essential part of gaining proficiency in a second language. Encouraging learners of second language to use different multi-word combinations and collocations is thought to extend their knowledge in language studies. In the field of ELT environment, a growing number of researchers suppose that after outlining reasonable vocabulary learning goals, educators should underline the importance of teaching lexical collocations reasonably. In countries where English is taught as a second language, learners should be promoted to gather lexical knowledge and achieve four English skills (reading, writing, listening, speaking). From beginning to advanced level, high-frequent collocations can be found mostly in speech and writing. In this study, Turkish EFL learners’ lexical collocations knowledge and usage are analyzed in the reading and writing skills. From the results of this research, it can be concluded that teaching lexical and academic collocations provide learners to acquire language effectively and be more fluent in it prominently.
