The study investigates the relative effectiveness of inductive and deductive approaches to learning collocations by using a concordancer. The relationship between cognitive approaches and levels of collocation difficulty is also examined. Eighty-one second-year students from a senior high school in Taiwan participated in the study. The results showed that the inductive group improved significantly better than the deductive group in the performance of collocation learning and easy collocations seem to be more suitable in the concordancer learning setting.
