Diferencias entre MAKE y DO

Otro quebradero de cabeza para los que aprenden inglés es cuando usar MAKE y cuando DO. Os vamos a hacer un resumen de las nociones más importantes. Como podreis observar siempre pongo el ejemplo con el verbo, es la mejor manera de aprenderlo.  No os aprendais una lista como con DO ( esto, lo otro y lo otro) y con MAKE (aquello, aquello otro, etc..), lo mejor es aprenderlo como si fuesen junto (do the washing, do the homework,  make food, make a map, etc.)


Uso de DO

 

– Actividades diarias o tareas : (mi truco: casi todo lo que se hace en casa es con DO)

  • do homework, do housework, do a job, do the ironing, the dishes, etc….

– Ideas generales, normalmente  se utilizan con “something, nothing, anything, everything, etc.”

  • I’m not doing anything today. He does everything to succeed. She’s doing nothing to solve the problem.

– Expresiones con DO (que no se deben olvidar):

  • Do a favour
  • Do business (truco: “DO business to MAKE money“)
  • Do one’s best
  • Do an exercise
  • Do your nails/hair

 


Uso de MAKE

 

 

-Actividades que crear, construir, fabricar, etc. : (truco: lo que puedes tocar: make the food, make a cup of coffee, etc.)

  • make a cup of tea, make the food, make a map, make breakfast, make lunch, make dinner, etc.
