Details This study investigated how data-driven learning (DDL) aids in learning English light verbs among 29 Japanese university students. Focusing on six common light verbs, the students used worksheets for nine weeks to learn verb-noun collocations, aided by Wordbanks Online. The study measured effectiveness through pre-tests, immediate post-tests, and delayed post-tests. Results indicated that DDL significantly improved knowledge of light verbs and noun collocations, with varying effects across different verbs. The study suggests that both worksheet engagement and concordance line observation are crucial for memorizing these collocations.
