More information

There are millions of collocations in English, which is probably the case for most other languages.

You cannot memorise them all, so what can you do?

I suggest you pay attention to what you read and hear, and use active reading and listening.  In other words, repeat what you've just read or heard.  If you repeat it incorrectly, this is your opportunity to learn something.  Add the phrase into Anki.
