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?

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:

Faire

"Je fais un spectale" is "I'm doing a show". So, what's "I'm creating a show" in French?

Bonjour Joakim !


To say "I'm creating a show" in the sense of I'm organising it to be played etc, you can use the phrase monter un spectacle: "Je monte un spectacle avec une troupe d'acteurs exceptionnels."


À bientôt !

Bonjour Angel,

With most French verbs, yes. But faire is irregular - the vous conjugation is faites.

Bonjour,
Also with the verb "dire" which is irregular like "faire" the vous conjugation is dites
