You don't need to worry about this question anymore, because, in this video, I'll explain the difference between make and do. Oh, and don't forget to subscribe to the channel. But first, I have a challenge for you. We have these six activities, and you have to decide whether you use "do" or "make" when talking about them. After watching this video, please leave your answers in the comments. "Do" and "make" are two of the most common verbs in English, and people use them all the time. But don't worry, I will help you learn to use them in the right way. To start with, we usually use "do" when we talk about activities. For example, "do a task," "do someone a favor," and "do the shopping." "Make," on the other hand, can often mean there is an element of creating something. A result, for example. You "make a mess," "make a sound," and "make breakfast." For example, when I was doing the exercises, I made two mistakes. I did some research for the university, and I made a presentation with the conclusions. We usually use "do" when we talk about housework, as in "do the laundry" or "do the dishes." Work and study as in "do homework," "do business," or "do a project." We usually use "make" when (we) talk about food as in "make a cup of tea" or "make a reservation at a restaurant." Money, as in "make money," or "make X dollars, pounds, euros, pesos" from selling something. Relationships, as in "make friends" or "make up." Communication, as in "make a phone call, or "make a confession." Plans and progress as in "make mistakes" or "make a list." But remember, these are just common collocations and generalizations, not absolute rules, because there are some exceptions within these categories that you will need to be careful with. That is everything for today, guys. I hope "make" and "do" are a little clearer for you now. Please, don't forget to write down your answer of the challenge from the start of the video. Thumbs up if you like this video, and don't forget to share it with your friends. See you.
