  1. Hi, Michael! Today’s chart is really helpful for me, because I often make mistakes when I choose verbs. By the way, it was a really busy day today, because I had to do a lot of laundry in the morning. On Saturdays I do a lot of laundry. Then, I had to prepare breakfast, after that do the dishes. Even though I had to go and pick up the tickets for the musical, nobody helped me. So, I finished doing household chores as quick as possible, and did my hair and my make-up in a short time. I thought I’ve done a good job for everything, but no one mentioned about that. Now my husband and my daughter are sleeping, but I still do some work. I have to iron some shirts, handkerchiefs, and so on. This is my true story from today. Thank you so much for your reading.

  2. Hi, Michael! This is a big help for me! I gave one of my classes a list of verbs for them to write either ‘do’ or ‘make’ with them. They will really appreciate this!
