Why Collocation is important?

One of the biggest peculiar habits of IELTS/PTE Aspirants is that they do not practice collocation, or in other words, collocation is mostly an overlooked aspect of the English language when tutors prepare them for the exam at major institutes in Ahmedabad. Even the reference books do not have much focus on this aspect. When a test taker prepares for the exam, even they are not aware of collocation. Faculty does not bother to teach them what words go well with each other. Only they crave for content.
