Abstract: The present study undertakes to assess the success with which intermediate pre-university Polish learners of English are able to locate English collocations in two learners’ dictionaries, representing two different dictionary types. The first of these is a general dictionary for learners, Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English, fourth edition (LDOCE). The second dictionary is a special-purpose dictionary dealing specifically with collocations, the Oxford Collocations Dictionary (OCD). The collocations are classified into several types for the findability test.
