WHEN DO YOU USE DO?
The Difference between DO and MAKE. DO generally refers to the action itself, and MAKE usually refers to the result.
DO is used as follows:
- Have you done your homework?
- I have guests visiting tonight so I should start doing the housework now.
- I wouldn’t like to do that job.
- Hurry up! I’ve got things to do!
- Don’t just stand there – do something!
- Is there anything I can do to help you?
- Do I need to do my hair? (do = brush or comb)
- Have you done the dishes yet? (done = washed)
- I’ll do the kitchen if you do the lawns (do = clean, do = mow)
Remember Do can also be as an auxiliary verb (for making questions in the present tense – Do you like chocolate?).
