I HATE ENGLISH! 12 things that don't make any sense

source: Learn English with Ronnie!      2017年2月24日
Is English hard for you to learn? It's not your fault! This language doesn't make sense! In this video, I talk about twelve things in English that don't make sense, and that can be confusing, especially for English learners. Does your alarm clock "go on" or "go off"? It "goes off". But why do we say "off" when it is actually turning "on"? What does it mean to "sleep like a baby"? Have you "taken a dump" today? Where did you take it? To your mom's birthday party? It's weird. It doesn't make sense. It's English. Learn these words and expressions so that you can use them correctly, even if they are illogical! Watch this lesson and receive a free gift!

'Do' vs 'Make' - Learn the difference with Ceema

source: Learn English with Let's Talk    2017年2月19日

DO is used as follows:
DO is used when talking about work, jobs or tasks, taking care of your body and general actions.
• Do the Dishes
• So the laundry
• Do a report
• Do a course
• Do your hair
• Do your makeup
• Do well
• Do everything or Do nothing

We sometimes use DO to replace a verb when the meaning is clear or obvious. This is more common in informal spoken English:
• 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)

When do you use MAKE?
Make is for food, money, relationships and communication
• Make breakfast
• Make a reservation
• Make a fortune
• Make $100 an hour
• Make friends
• Makeup ( to patch up with someone)
• Make a pass
• Make a point
• Make a confession
• Make an excuse

We also use Make for producing an action or reaction:
• Onions make your eyes water.
• You make me happy.
• It’s not my fault. My brother made me do it!
