    Wink Do vs. Make

    Hi teachers
    I take your "Do vs. Make" quizz but I only got a 54% of the grade... so, as you can understand, I need to learn how to recognize the use of these verbs in each case or situation.

    If there is guideline o something like that for recognizing that let me know it pitifully I think there is not, anyway


    Thanks in advanced

    Carlos

    As a basic distinction, we use 'make' with the product or result and 'do' with an activity or process.
    So, we do the washing, but make the dinner.
