Collocations are an important aspect of vocabulary teaching. Simply, 2 or more words that often go together - phrases, expressions, binomials, idioms, formulaic speech.  Lexical bundles or chunks.  Here is a nice article highlighting their importance in a language. 

Here are a whole pile of worksheets to use and get students focusing on collocations. 

Read all the books related to main collocations on Gif Lingua - each with a flashcard set and video lessons (hit "Settings" then "Study" on the main page of any book).
