I remember visiting this website once...
It was called Learning English in Chunks |Virtual kidspace
Here's some stuff I remembered seeing:
Chunks are group of words which are used together.Learning chunks helps to frame the sentences easily and correctly.Knowing chunks of a language is a must for fluent speaking.
Eg : We will describe wind as " a strong wind " not as " a powerful wind ".
Although the words "Strong" and "powerful" conveys the same meaning,the word "strong" is used in common.Like this,the words which are commonly grouped and used together are called as chunks of a language.This type of linking words together is called collocation.
Compare to idioms and phrases,learning chunks greatly assists in speaking English more naturally and confidently.
When you know chunks of a language,you can frame the sentence with group of words and need not struggle to build the sentence word by word.
Reading and listening is crucial for learning the chunks of a language.
