    Re: proofreading - learning at home

    Of course not making mistakes is easier...but normally people make mistakes. So why beat yourself up about it? Just try and learn from the mistake, so that in the future you will perfom better. Learners (especially people from Spain) tend to feel really bad about making mistakes and this holds them back a great deal. Not focusing on mistakes can really help people improve.

    Re: proofreading - learning at home

    I would like to know what is the difference between “I do my homework” and “I make my homework”?
    Thank you.

    I don't know. What does "I make my homework" mean?

    RonBee: "I don't know. What does "I make my homework" mean?"

    I'm surprised, but I've got the answer by your question; if this sentence has not a sense, so, the other is the proper form to say: “I do my homework”
    ((In my language the words “to do” and “to make” have very near meanings, often are expressed by the same word… and that can be the reason of my hesitation for using them.))

    RonBee: “(If you are going to start a new topic, start a new thread.)”

    I don’t see why you write it me; I didn’t want to start a new topic… or did I do something wrong? If yes, I’m sorry about that.

    This thread has outlived its usefulness. New topic, new thread.
