This verb’s meaning gravitates between make and do, and that will depend on what words we’re placing next to it.

Here’s a chart on how to conjugate in the Simple Present :

Ella haceShe makes/ She does
Usted haceYou make/ You do (formal)

  • Tú haces la tarea. (You do homework.)
  • Él hace las reservaciones (He makes reservations.)
  • Ella hace las labores domésticas. (She does housework.)

Remember that with subjects: yo, tú, and nosotros we can drop the pronoun and say the sentences only with the verb because its conjugation implies who we are refering to. So in those cases we can simply say: “Hago la tarea.”, “Haces la tarea.”, and “Hacemos listas del mandado.”, respectively.
