I’m not sure why Indonesian students run into problems with make, especially when make is tied to an adjective – as it is in this example. The Indonesian structure is exactly the same as the English:
Routine activities make our hearts are happy.
Buat orang senang = Make someone happy = Make + noun + adjective
- Routine activities make our hearts happy.
Of course make can also be tied to a verb:
- She made me do it!
In this case you need the structure:
- subject + make + object + V1
So, make is actually easier to use than you might think:
- She makes me happy (adj).
- She makes me laugh (v).
