Once you have learned the basics of Google search, you can begin to use more advanced search features that will allow you to structure even more precise searches.  This video is especially helpful for language teachers/learners or those interested in learning about language and language usages through Google search.  

This video explains finding word groupings (word collocations): 
  • Google's dictionary search using define
  • Finding where to go online for examples of Standard English using Google News
  • Exploring word usage, collocations, and common word groupings (for example, learning to find which preposition comes after "interested" (answer: interested in)) by using wildcard (*) search 
(video requires flash to view)
