Tell me the difference between “make sure” and “ensure”

Which one is right here…

Please ensure/make sure that you upload a good quality video

They are synonymous. You can use either with no difference in meaning.

Hi Bonychat,

For me ‘ensure’ would usually be used for something a bit more serious than simply ‘uploading a good quality video’. To illustrate my point: Always ensure that you examine the details on the contract before you sign.


I can imagine scenarios where uploading video is part of a serious process, rather than simply frivolous web activity!

Here we go again!
