Some IELTS learners (including myself) find it difficult to learn "collocations" as there is no particular list for such, only constant exposure and practice of the English language.

Hi Yves

"ozdic.com" is useful for practice but of course not available in the exam.

There is also:

So collocation lists are in fact readily available, although to me it seems better just to read something interesting, enjoy the process, and keep the motivation going. Cheers

Can you tell us when to use the word "discrepancy" ?
