Quiz playing is a wonderful way to increase your knowledge of English as a Second Language. Remember that all of our ESL quizzes have titles that are both friendly and technical at the same time… In the case of this quiz you might like to tell your friends about the “How Do You Do Quiz” but your teacher will probably talk to you about "Making and Doing". If you hear a technical term and you want to find a quiz about the subject then just look through the list of quiz titles until you find what you need.
Like other languages, English uses a hard-working group of little vital everyday verbs such as "do" and "make". Some other languages have a single verb that covers all these usages of both making and doing. For instance French: faire; German: machen; Spanish: hacer. Unfortunately English is a little more complicated and you need to learn which word ('make' or 'do') to use in difference circumstances.
For your information, "How do you do?" is a standard, slightly old-fashioned English question that people ask each other when they meet. It does not really expect a full true answer; it's just a courtesy to help start the conversation.
