We all know "take care of ~" but the other day, I met the expression "have the care of ~". I searched the net and found the difference between them.

It said, "take care of ~" means 'temporarily' and "have the care of ~" means 'as a habit or job" so if you're a nanny, it is more suitable to say "I have take care of babies." and I got more curious and searched "make care of ~" and surprised to see the many results.

The point is when I study English, I only memorized "take care of ~". Come to think of it, however, it would be more effective to use the verb (take, have, make, get ...) freely (of course, if it makes sense) instead of memorizing certain expressions, such as, "make fun of, make use of, take a look at, take advantage of".

If I'm right, is it ok to those expressions? .. take fun of, have use of, have a look at, make advantage of ...
and how do you decide "the, a, ~s" in this case? You can say 'have the care of" but not "take the care of"? ...

take a care of, take cares of ..... I'm confused. ~_~ help me..

Hi,
We all know "take care of ~" but the other day, I met the expression "have the care of ~". I searched the net and found the difference between them.

It said, "take care of ~" means 'temporarily' and "have the care of ~" means 'as a habit or job" That's true. Nevertheless, we usually just say 'I take care of . . . ' in both cases. ;Have the care of' sounds very formal, and is not often used.
so if you're a nanny, it is more suitable to say "I have take care of babies." No, I think what you looked at said to use 'I have the care of babies'. and I got more curious and searched "make care of ~" and surprised to see the many results. I took a quick look, and they are things like 'Today, many people make care of the environment a priority'. It's quite a different expresiion than the two you were talking about above.

The point is when I study English, I only memorized "take care of ~". Come to think of it, however, it would be more effective to use the verb (take, have, make, get ...) freely (of course, if it makes sense) instead of memorizing certain expressions, such as, "make fun of, make use of, take a look at, take advantage of".

If I'm right, is it ok to those expressions? .. take fun of, have use of, have a look at, make advantage of ... Someof these make sense, some don't. You really have to look carefully at what you want to say. You can't just interchange these verbs in every case.

and how do you decide "the, a, ~s" in this case? You can say 'have the care of" but not "take the care of"? ... 'Take care of' is an idiomatic expression. You just have to learn it by heart.

take a care of, take cares of .. I'm confused. ~_~ help me
My advice is that you should not worry about so many things at once. You will become confused. If you would like to write and post some sentences that use these kinds of expressions, we can tell you whether they sound OK.

Best wishes, Clive

Thank you for your quick and nice advice!

Yeah, I think I might have rush into things. -0-;;

From now on, I need to learn expressions more carefully through good examples.
