-A collocation is a group of words that are used together or 

common  words . 

Students of English have to make a specail effort to learn them 

because they are difficult to guess , Some combination sound 

wrong for examples 

we say fast train  - but we don't say quick cars

we say Fast food - but we don't say quick food

we can say fast collocates with cars, but not with a meal  

Examples :

We say quick meal - but we don't say a fast meal

and the same thing with Glance

Note :

Learning collocations is an significant part of learing the 

vocabulary of a language
