The French verb faire means to do or to make.
Here's how to say I do/make - I'm doing/making and you do/make - you're doing/making in French:
Je fais un gâteau.I'm making a cake.
Je fais mes devoirs.I'm doing my homework.
Tu fais du sport?Do you exercise?
Note that the vous form (faites) is different to the je and tu forms (fais).
Remember that in French, to say you, you will use either:
- tu to address one person you know well, i.e. informal and singular
- vous to address one person in a professional context, or that you don't know well, i.e. formal and singular
See Tu and vous are used for three types of you
Tu fais quoi?What are you doing?
Vous faites quoi?What are you doing?
