Collocations to talk about change
In the IELTS and Cambridge exams, you will most likely be asked about CHANGE. These questions can take a wide variety of forms, including the following:
How has your city changed over the past 20 years?
Do you think that transportation in your country will change over the next two decades?
How is your life different today from when you were a teenager?
When learning vocabulary, you should always learn COLLOCATIONS. Collocations are groups of two or more words that usually go together. The following list of words can be used to create collocations to talk about change!
Here are some sample sentences using these collocations:
The new law has brought about an ENORMOUS CHANGE in driving habits.
