One Point English Grammar Lesson: “Make an effort”

Michael Uncategorized 4 Comments

When you use your energy and try very hard to do something, you can use “make an effort.”

The pattern is subject + make an effort + to + verb + object:

  • EunYoung is making an effort to study English.
  • Tomomi made an effort to learn ballet.
  • Ali is making an effort to finish the report by 5:00pm.
