Do or Make Challenge

The collocations with the verbs do and make can be very confusing for non-native speakers of English and for students. The 122 common collocations in this Challenge Test will help you to master them. Remember that we use do for obligations, repetitive tasks, and actions, but we use make when we talk about creating something or for actions we choose to do. Make usually refers to the result of the action, while do refers to the action itself.

You have to learn collocations because they are difficult to guess from the words alone. The verbs do and make are often confused by students, but these two verbs are used in many common everyday collocations. Many students, for instance, make mistakes when they say do mistakes. This lesson will help you to avoid making the same mistakes.
