In this video English lesson, part of my Daily Dose of English series from 2010-2011, I look at Make or Do | No Words
“Make” and “do” are two verbs that are often confused by students. Their meanings are similar, but there are differences. I hope that this video will help you to see how we use “do” as a main verb, rather than as an auxiliary verb, for activities that produce no physical object, for general ideas, and in many common expressions. I hope, also, that it will show you how the verb “make”, which is only ever used as a main verb and never as an auxiliarly verb, is used when we create something that you can touch and with many common expressions.
