Assunto:  Make or do?
 
Mensagem:  Make or do is tricky for us Brazilians.

We say "arrumar" a cama then we wonder if it's to "do the bed" or "make the bed"?

this one I know because I said "to do the bed" and an american lady I know corrected me "to make the bed"...this ways it is easier to remember.

maybe this link can help:
