Assunto:  Re: Make & do
 
Mensagem:  Italian students had difficulty with this distinction because their verb 'fare' overlapped most of the cases where do or make were used in English. The default translation of fare was make so I would hear an overuse of make in cases where in English do was 'carrect' In general it can be said that make has a sense of construction whereas do is less specific, not carrying make's sense of 'assembling' something
