Strong collocations are word pairings that are expected to come together. Good examples of this type of word pairing are combinations with 'make' and 'do'. You make a cup of tea, but do your homework. Collocations are very common in business settings when certain nouns are routinely combined with certain verbs or adjectives. For example, draw up a contract, set a price, conduct negotiations, etc.
A good way to learn collocations is to group collocations beginning with a noun. For example, take the noun 'contract' and create a list of commonly used verbs with contract.
Contract -> draw up, sign, negotiate, etc.
