DO vs. MAKE - ESL / ELL Summary Charts

Charts to explain the difference between DO and MAKE in English which is a common mistake with ESL / ELL students.

The first chart is a summary of the difference between DO and MAKE. The rest of the charts highlight the individual uses or situations in which these verbs are generally used.

These charts are similar to those that appear in our video on YouTube about this topic: DO vs. MAKE (Suitable for the classroom). Once the video has been seen, students can each have a copy of the main slides/charts for their own reference.
