Do or Make?

Share this with your friends

It’s been a while since I’ve done anything in the blog so I’ll start with something simple.

When should I use do and when should I use make in sentences?

To me, making something means that I will always have a result.

For example, I’m making coffee, so, as soon as I’m done, I’ll have a nice cup of coffee like the one below. (Result)

Now, let’s look at do.

One problem teachers have is homework.

Doing homework

When I’m giving students homework, they don’t always give it to me in time. So, because there’s a chance that you won’t finish the homework, you do your homework. You also use do when talking about things in general.

There are exceptions and other uses, but we’ll talk about them later.

Let’s practice the two forms by doing an exercise.

I am still expermenting with blogging and I hope to make the explanations as short as possible, opting for exercises instead, so in case you still have some questions, leave a comment below and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.
