  13. 13. Learning Collocations in FLAX: in response to ‘where are the good published collocations resources?’• Research shows that the successful use of collocations in student writing and speaking supports not only improved levels of accuracy but also improved levels of fluency in their use of English (Wray, 2002; Nesselhauf, 2003).• Constraints with published collocations resources – Publication issues = the number and specificity of collocations examples that can be assigned to print and CD-ROM formats.
