Collocations are words that commonly go together. Using them makes you sound more like a native speaker.

For example, a person might say: “That coffee is really strong!” The words “coffee” and “strong” are often used together.
But a native speaker would never say:

“That coffee is really powerful!” The words “coffee” and “powerful” are never used together. On the other hand, you can say, “That car has a powerful engine.”

In this podcast I’ll share a few of the many collocations with the word “look”.

1) We should take a fresh look at how we teach foreign languages. [another]

2) His book offers an interesting look at the history of ancient Egypt.

3) American voters need to take a long, hard look at the politicians they are choosing.

4) Our professor gave us a close-up look at an archeological dig site.

5) Take a look at my brother’s new electric Porsche!

6) I’m going to sneak a look in my sister’s diary.

7) Have a look at this flower garden—it’s spectacular.

8) Look at my new necklace! And I have matching earrings.

9) I need to look over the paintings to see if any are worth buying.

10) I looked through the book but it didn’t look interesting so I didn’t buy it.

11) I took a quick look in his desk but I didn’t find a gun.

12) We took a good look around the house and decided it was too small for our family.

13) You should look on the internet for a good private school for your son.

14) I threw my uncle a dirty look but he didn’t notice.

15) That was a nasty look your teacher gave you.

16) She gave the cook a withering look. “This chicken is half raw,” she told him.

17) Martha gave her husband a murderous look.

18) When the building started to shake, all the people inside had terrified looks on their faces.

19) “Don’t look so sad and glum,” I said. “At least we still have food to eat and fresh water to drink.”

20) The child had a distant, dreamy look on his face.

21) The alien gave me a funny look and then flew away.

22) Mary gave her boyfriend an innocent, wide-eyed look and then burst out laughing.

23) John told a bad joke and got a black look from his father.

24) She caught his look, but said nothing.

25) The puzzled look on his face showed that he didn’t understand the situation.

Look can also be related to somebody’s or something’s appearance, or to fashion or style.

26) I want an apartment with a modern look.

27) By the looks of her, she hasn’t slept in a week.

28) “Wow! Your new hair style gives you a very sophisticated look.”

29) “I love the classic look of old sports cars.”

30) Some women lose their looks when they get old, but others are attractive forever.

Believe it or not there are plenty more collocations with “look”, but it’s time for me to take Ollie for a walk so he can do some looking and sniffing. Thanks for listening and if you enjoy these podcasts, please consider making a small contribution to help cover the costs of keeping it online. Take care!
