In this paper we present a study on the pro- duction of collocations by students of Eu- ropean Portuguese as a foreign language. We start by gathering several corpora writ- ten by students, and identify the correct and incorrect collocations. We annotate the latter considering several different as- pects, such as the error location, descrip- tion and explanation. Then, taking these elements into consideration, we compare the performance of students considering their levels of proficiency, their mother tongue and, also, other languages they know. Finally, we correct all the students productions and contribute with a corpus of everyday language collocations that can be helpful in Portuguese classes.
