This current study sought to reveal the impacts of corpus-based activities on verb-noun collocation learning in EFL classes. This study was carried out on two groups--experimental and control groups- each of which consists of 15 students. The students were preparatory class students at School of Foreign Languages, Osmaniye Korkut Ata University. Before the treatment, a pretest was administered to both groups. The results of the pretest demonstrated that there was not significant difference between the control and the experimental group. Throughout the study, the experimental group was taught verb-noun collocation through corpus-based materials taken from COCA, and the control group was taught through a conventional method. The results demonstrated that there is a statistically significant difference between experimental and control group in terms of the type of treatment, which signifies that corpus-based activities has a significant impact on verb-noun collocations in EFL classes.
