Q: What is the difference between make and do ?
A: This is a confusing one.

Make refers to creating something and is a future tense word. Do refers to actually completing something in real time. But I can also be used for future tense as well.

For example: "I want to make cake" "I'm going to make you do your homework" "let's make something to eat" in all these cases, make represents an action that has not yet been completed or is being planned.

Do by itself can be used to discribe a future action as well, but to use make and do the same way you have to say doing. So for example, "is this what you want to do?" "I have things to do" "she's going to do it later". These all would imply an action that is not yet complete. You could also use do to show something currently happening. For example "she is doing it right now" "that's what we're doing" "what they doing?" These show something happening at that moment.

Where it gets tricky is that doing can also be future tense as well. "What are we going to be doing later" "they're not doing that now" these uses show something that is going to be done in the future just like when you use make. So it's a little tricky but that's basically the difference
