Make & Do Collocations


Access all resources for €0.61/week!

Level: This is suited to B1 but can be used with extra support at A2+ level or as revision with B2- level students.

Time: 1 hr + (depending on level, and conversation development).

This ‘Make & Do Collocations’ lesson starts with an introduction to the general rules for when to use make or do in collocations. Students then focus on common categories which use make or do before moving on to some practice exercises. Next, the lesson looks at some make and do collocations which don’t obviously follow the category rules.

In the next phase of the lesson, the students will learn some further uses of do in collocations. Finally, they are given lots of opportunity to consolidate and practice what they have learned by asking and answering questions featuring the phrases. The lesson ends with a quick revision section.

We have a teacher’s copy (including teacher’s notes, a pronunciation guide and an answer key) and a student version which you can email to your class for online lessons.
