Routine activities make our hearts are happy.

Indonesian flag 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:

verb noun adjective
Indonesian flag membuat orang senang
Union Jack make someone 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).
