Make and do – when should you use Make and Do


My friend keeps asking me whether there is a logical way to see if he should use DO or MAKE. I always told him that there is not and that he should learn the phrases by heart. However, when he asked me for the third time I sat down and created a logical division for him. It is not foolproof but it is better than nothing. So I hope you will find it useful too.

Make and do – games

As there is nothing more to explain, here are two games to practise the language.

Make and do – Hoop shoot

In this game it is your task to choose the correct verb and then stop the circles as close to the center as possible. Good luck.
The HOOP SHOOT GAMEThe game is in Flash

Make and do – Teacher invaders

In this game your task is to write the right word (MAKE or DO) to complete the phrases. And then … SHOOT THEM ALL.
