Having an impact on someone

😦 Passive smoking brings negative impact for people who do not smoke.

This is a collocation problem for Indonesians translating “..membawa dampak negatif untuk..”

In English the collocation is:

🙂 Passive smoking has a negative impact on people who do not smoke.

Note! s.th./s.o. has + an impact + on + s.th./s.o. 

Using the correct collocation will have a very positive impact on your IELTS score for vocabulary in both speaking and writing!
