Do vs Make

Some time ago, we had a look at the so-called empty verbs (see previous post on it).

‘DO’ or ‘MAKE’ were two of these verbs and, as main verbs, they can be quite confusing to English learners. How good are you at using them? Are you able to make two lists with the actions in the bubble that take DO and the ones that take MAKE?

Remember that, as a general rule, we use DO when someone performs an everyday activity or job, especially housework and we use MAKE for building or creating something.

Why don’t you try quiz 1 + quiz 2 to check how many of the words from the list you remember? Not sure you can do it yet? Click on the image below to get a clue
