TO MAKE (REVISION)-1: meaning and examples

Good morning. I hope you had a nice weekend.

This week we are going to revise some Daily Vitamins that were originally sent in December of 2003. We will concentrate on a very very high-frequency word in English: the verb to make. I hope you find them useful.

Today we look at the most "obvious" meaning of make: to create or produce.

Example 1:
This furniture is made of quality products; it was made in Spain.

Example 2:
Hollywood is going to make a movie about his life.

But make is also used in many different ways and in dozens of phrases: make a decision (US), make an effort, make progress, make a mistake, etc. Over the next few days we will review some of the different uses of this very-useful verb.

Please post any questions about today's Daily Vitamin in the Daily Vitamin Plus! forum section on our website. If you have any questions about how to use the Daily Vitamin Plus! section or would like to receive a Daily Vitamin Plus! manual, please contact us.

Have a good day.
