Average: 1.5 (240 votes)


'Be careful that you don't make a mistake!'

Today we take a look at the word make. This useful word is used a lot in English. It collocates with many other words. This means that it appears with certain words to make a set phrase. For example, we say ‘make a mistake’ and NOT ‘do a mistake’ or ‘take a mistake’. That is because make collocates with mistake.

Now take a look at these make sentences and choose the correct word to best complete each sentence:

cry - noise – a call – changes – laugh – decision – angry – effort – profit – a snack
