    a word

    Dear Teachers,

    The other day one student came up with the word expression high volunes of people. Her sentence was, that day there high volumes of people. To be honest, I have never heard that expression before.
    She was sopposed to be writing a formal summary to her boss.

    Thanks for your reply,

    Re: a word

    "high volumes of people" is fine as an expression. Whether it is suitable in the context of your student's summary I can't say without more context. Other similar collocations would be -

    low volumes of people
    large volumes of people
    small volumes of people
