Reading and writing are often closely related.  By reading a good example of writing, the reader can benefit themselves from an experienced writer's effective writing, and, in turn, improve their writing skills.  In addition, understanding the style of writing will also help the reader to take in information from the article, as well as to enhance their comprehension of the article.  Thus, in this unit, we will first focus on the style of comparison writing and learn topic-related vocabulary words and expressions. 

A collocation is a pair or group of words that are often used together. These combinations sound natural to native speakers, but students of English have to make a special effort to learn them because they are often difficult to guess. Learning collocations is an important part of learning the vocabulary of a language. In this unit, we will study the notion of collocation through activities to help you enhance both your speaking and writing.
