Learning collocation or words that go together in English is very important. Certain English words are only with some others, so when you learn lexical items, do not learn them isolation. Rather learn them in contexts and attention to word combinations. Using collocations correctly will help you sound natural. If you combine words in English by literally meanings from your mother tongue, your word choice might not be correct or might sound weird. Reading and listening extensively in English is very helpful. You will be exposed to the ways speakers use English in spoken and written texts. Learning collocations from dictionary is also helpful. Oxford collocations Dictionary for Students of English is an extremely good resource.
