While in the verb section of the grammar course, we might also look at the meaning of verbs that often cause learners of English problems. The two words are Do and Make. For speakers of Spanish and German, Do and Make can be confusing. DO presents a process and MAKE presents a product, be it material or intangible. DO means an action is carried out until it is complete. MAKE means that parts or ingredients have been put together into a whole. DO shows that something is ready for later use. MAKE also means something comes into existence.
