Do or Make?

There are many English expressions that use "do" or "make." It is confusing! Here are links that explain more about when to use "do" and when to use "make."


I like what Rebecca says. There are guidelines, but it is best to learn the expressions by heart! There is a quiz at the end of her article.

Kenneth has a different way of explaining it. There is a quiz at the end of the article.

Here are quizzes to help you practice.


I like this video by English Social Network. He "thinks aloud" using make and do expressions.
In this video, the teacher uses a whiteboard and talks about the difference between "make" and "do" expressions.

Ronnie explains the difference using expressions about chores you do around the house. Try taking this quiz after you watch her video:
