collocations in English (1) fall into a number of different categories. In this article I should like to draw a (2) distinction between "ordinary" collocations and those that are so fixed that they can be called idioms. Although my main focus is on "ordinary" collocations, I shall also to some extent (3) take idioms into consideration too. I plan to (4) raise a number of questions about learning  collocations in a foreign or second language. I shall attempt to answer these questions by (5) making reference to the work of the leading writers in the field. My intention is to make a strong (6) case for a more intensive focus on collocation in the language learning process. I shall also (7) touch on issues such as pronunciation.

Book review for the Rango

“rango picture”的图片搜索结果
  The book Rango was about a green chameleon who walked into the town of Dirt looking for water. In fact, I have watched the movie before, and I thought both the movie and book were funny. At first, Rango lied about the story of killing the Jenkins brothers in the bar. After they walked out of the bar, Rango saw a very big bird and the bird went after him. Luckily, the water tower fell onto the bird. So he got the big bird by accident and became the hero and new sheriff of Dirt town.
  The animals of Dirt wanted water, so Rango led the team looking for water along the pipe. At the end of pipe, they found some mud. The mayor thought Rango may discover his secret, so he asked for Rattlesnake Jack, a very big snake. When the animals came back to town, they were frightened and ran away. And Rango was drowned out of the town. When he walked in the desert, he met Roadkill again and found out mayor’s secret and a big water pipe. The mayor stored the water and planned to build a new city on the land, he didn’t want the town of Dirt. Then Rango went back to the town and released the water from the big water pipe. At last, Rattlesnake Jack, the big snake took the mayor away with him and the animals got the water supply. Rango became a real hero at the end of story.
In the story, Rango lied at first, but after he became the new sheriff, he tried to run the small town Dirt although it didn’t go as planned. At last he faced the big snake that the animals were frightened of and won the fight and water supply. He learned his lesson and grew up as a real hero. It’s a funny book and can teach younger kids what and what not to do, and how to be a good friend and be honest.

  My name is Liu Zhipeng, I'm from Hubei province of China. I have been in Japan for almost one year. In April, I entered Kumamoto University as a graduated student, majoring in Social environmental engineering. After the entrance ceremony, the Kumamoto Earthquake happened, it was terrible but also an unforgettable experience. It's really a coincidence that our Lab is researching about the earthquake. So, the professor takes it as a good chance to carry out the field survey and build model of the bridges. Therefore, it gets busy after the earthquake.
  Before I came Japan, I got to know it through cartoons. And I spent much time watching cartoons and movies in my college days. So it was a pity that I didn't travel around and  experience a different way of life. This also may be the reason for my study abroad. These days, I am trying to learn Japanese and English, also make friends from other countries.
