"I'll make dinner" is apparently not acceptable

"I'll make dinner" ("I will make dinner" ) is future tense, and therefore would have a different conjugation of 'hacer' - "Yo haré la cena". 'Hago' is present tense meaning "I make".

Hacer is an irregular verb. It's not going to conjugate the way many other -ER verbs do in the present tense.

Hace is the el/ella/ usted form, hago is the yo form.

Hago? I don't know this conjugation. I understand it comes from hacer though.

"Hago" is the 1st person singular, present tense form of "hacer".
Yo hago = I make/do/etc.
Tú haces = you make/...
Él/Ella/Usted hace = he/she/you(formal) make
Nosotros hacemos = we make
Vosotros hacéis = you all(formal) make
Ellos/Ellas/Ustedes hacen = they/you all make
The 1st person singular form has an irregular conjunction.

I do make the dinner. Was wrong. Why?

4 years ago

https://www.duolingo.com/kindar

I would guess because adding "do" is an English way of adding emphasis or improper grammar. If the latter, then it's incorrect English. If the former, then there is probably a particular way of adding emphasis in Spanish that has not been covered.

"I'm doing dinner" was wrong, even though that is a commonly used expression in English as a substitute for "making dinner". Pretty annoying given that hacer also translates as "make or do"

i made the dinner was wrong. What's the past tense of hago?

'Hago' (I make) is the present tense of 'hacer' (to make/do/etc.) and 'hice' (I made) is the past tense of 'hacer'.

''Hago'' means ''make'' or ''do''? or both?

"Hago" (1st person singular form of "hacer") means both depending on the context. "Hacer" has a variety of meanings.

The dictionary in the website Reverso is a great resource to learn the meaning of Spanish (or French, German, etc.) words, and the conjugator is a fabulous tool to learn all the different conjugations of verbs.
