Thank you James

    Understanding the rational behind the use of do/make will help us to become more proficient at English. There’s no doubt about it.

    Now let’s do the quiz and see if we all do well.

    Well, it’s time for meal James. Oh gosh! I just have to make do with a sandwich today. I had no time to cash my check.

    Excellent lesson James! Take care.

    Hello I would like practice English with you. I am from Colombia this is my WhatsApp 3104113274

    Thursday, May 25th 2017

      There is only one way to become proficient at anything: Practice.

      Have a nice day!

      Monday, May 29th 2017

    That’s just what I was thinking; I agree with you entirely Elisrpm.

    If we want to become fluent in English, we all need to MAKE an extra effort; practice MAKES the difference.

    Good luck with your English.

Wednesday, May 17th 2017

Thanks James)

Wednesday, May 17th 2017

Easy to understand to our teacher and it has been a clear and carefully explanation of the ambiguity of these two verbs, “to do” and “to make”, but when you listen to other conversations and contexts and change this pedagogic situation then maybe generate the doubt about what verb we should use. It depends on your memory to remember the exceptions like “make the bed”. I remember teacher Rebecca was explaining this concept although I haven’t seen teacher Ronnie’s explanation yet, I suppose I will have to make a view with Ronnie’s Engvid background to the inquiry of this topic. Thank a lot, teacher James, it has been a very interesting lesson as always.

Wednesday, May 17th 2017

I think there is a mistake on the board in the sentence: “you can see it but you can`t touch it”. It should have a comma as the following sentece: “you can see it, but you can`t touch it” because they are two sentences. Am I right?

you re amazing thank you and ı am sorry maybe ı am wrong you told that us you can not use to with modal but ı saw your mistake on make and do lesson and last question there is you wrote can to ı hope you understand me what ı said ….you had written that sentence … ı do everything ı can to make you happy can you tell me whats that?

Monday, November 6th 2017

    It’s not a mistake, there are two parts in this sentence. The first is: I do everything I can (it means – I do everything that I can do). The second part: to make you happy (an intention).

    Wednesday, November 8th 2017

Thank you teacher! very helpful!
