    course in English

    She is taking a course in English.
    She is doing a course in English.
    She is making a course in English.

    I guess the sentence with "making" is definitely wrong. Am I right?

    Re: course in English

    Only the first is correct and natural.

    You're correct that 'making' is incorrect.

    Re: course in English

    If she were designing the materials, she could be making a course, but that would make her a teacher rather than a student.
