Collocations: Make vs Do

Greetings everyone!

We’ve been active for a while but haven’t posted anything (for a variety of reasons), but now seems like a good time to do so. And since we are a language school (based in Madrid, Spain, in case you didn’t know), it seems fitting to launch our blog with some English grammar: Make vs Do collocations, something which seems to confuse many learners. Try the test and see how you do, then post your score. Good luck!
