- For Teachers
Can you say: "We want to make them recover"? It sounds a bit odd to me.
As in: "We need doctors that actually want to make the patients recover". Is this correct??
I don't think you can "make" someone recover. You can help them to recover, aid them in their recovery, enable their recovery, encourage them to get better, or even want to see someone recover.
We need more passionate doctors who actually want to see their patients recover. -- Would something like that work?
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
Thanks all for your help & time ;o)
And note that, as Barb said, it's "We want doctors who ...", not "what".
