Student or Learner
my english teacher, who is an american, told me that "to make a question" is a wrong expression and that i should avoid it.
i searched the web and i found thousands of citations with this expression.
is it really that wrong?
how should i say that?
"to ask a question"?
The British National Corpus does not recognise "make a question" which indicates that it is not a correct form.
"To ask a question" is right.
