ESL Student Activities

Make or do

This activity helps you identify with the use of ‘make’ or ‘do’.

Here’s a basic recap: We use ‘make’ when we create or construct something. For example:

  • She made dinner.
  • I’ve made us a dessert.
  • Did you really make those jackets?

We use ‘do’ for general activities. In this case, ‘do’ is often used with ‘something’, ‘nothing’, ‘anything’ or ‘everything’:

  • What did you do on Sunday?
  • I didn’t do anything last week.
  • He’s fed up with doing everything himself. He needs some help.
  • Are you doing anything tomorrow?
