Jókat csinálsz?, Jókat készítesz? ... I don't remenber készítesz before in the course. What's the word? Is there any difference between the two questions?

"Csinálsz" = you do,
"készítesz" = you make, you prepare.

But the main difference from English is that "csinál" can also be used in place of "készít".

There are other differences and other usages, but this is the main point here.

"Csinál" can refer to an activity, like walking or reading.

"Készít" has to do with a thing that you create, make or prepare..

And "készít" with various preverbs can also refer to preparing something in anticipation of an event. Like preparing for an exam, gathering necessary things for a trip, getting ready for something. Etc. Now, "csinál" is not used in this sense, only when actually making/creating something.
