Hacer – to do or to make – is one of the most common irregular Spanish verbs. In the simple present tense, hacer is often used just like these English verbs.

Hacer = to do / to make

Hacer can mean either "to do" or "to make." For English speakers learning Spanish, this is easy: you can use hacer for either. For Spanish speakers learning English, however, it’s much more difficult.*

Por ejemplo …

¿Hacés galletas todos los días? Do you make cookies every day?
Hago la cama.   I’m making the bed.
Hacen su trabajo. They’re doing their work.
¿Qué haces? What are you doing?
