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.

Wing Chun (Chinese: 詠春 or 咏春) is a concept-based martial art popular in the southern China area. Learning Wing Chun became popular again in Hong Kong and worldwide due to the famous martial art master Bruce Lee and the success of the Ip Man series movies in the Chinese community. Many Wing Chun Masters were Chinese speakers, and very few teach Wing Chun in other languages. 

 Unlike other martial art courses in Hong Kong, this course aims at learning English grammar, vocabulary and special terms for describing actions outside the traditional English language classroom setting. The qualified Wing Chun and English language instructor will teach English grammar, vocabulary and special terms for describing martial arts actions in the first 1-1/2 hours, followed by introducing the basic Wing Chun technique in the second half of the lesson.
