Do vs Make. Expressions with DO and MAKE.




Do vs Make. Expressions with DO and MAKE.
The English verbs do and make are frequently confused. Some guidelines do exist to help you determine ... is to practise, and then practise some more!
LANGUAGELEARNINGBASE.COM



These lists are periodically published here.
Unless you are in a hurry wanting to get ready for a close exam, don't take the risk to get bored, don't try to learn all of the expressions.
If you are learning English in the long term, it has to be solid. Just read the list one or two times, and remember what can be easily (2 or 3 new expressions); reading the lists another time will be printed in your brain; as I often write, the "music" will be printed (I mean the good expression will ring a bell) such as when a baby is learning the language.
When you want a language in the long term, you have to learn what you need in the present (what you didn't understand well yesterday, what you'll have to use tomorrow)... you need to pace yourself (Fr économiser vos forces, vos efforts).
... Just read one or two times and what needs to be printed will be.

By the way, what you already know will be reinforced (reading won't be useless anyway).
