To speak and write natural English, the use of collocations plays an important part. A collocation refers to two or more words that often go together.

For example, we say 'fast food' instead of 'quick food' and 'quick shower' but not 'fast shower'.  Mastering collocations will make your language more natural and more easily understood and thus have alternative and richer ways of expressing yourself.

The aim of this course is to introduce students to the Bible as a literary work, as well as a collection of books written in different genres. It will begin with an introduction to the historical and geographical backgrounds of the Old and New Testaments; and will then focus on specific books and genres.
