I was in Frankfurt for Management Circle teaching a course in Office Communication for Assistants, and the lovely group (hello, ladies!) decided these expressions with do and make were the most helpful ones. Some expressions included:

  • do well = gedeihen, florieren
  • do without = ohne etwas auskommen
  • make do with something = mit einer “suboptimalen” Sache auskommen
  • make ends meet = finanziell zurecht kommen
  • make up your mind = sich entscheiden
