Hi there

Is there any difference between Make it up for somene and make it up to someone, for example:

You ruined, how are you going to make it up to us
You ruined, how are you going to make it up for us

Is it the same?

thanks guys

    You ruined [it], how are you going to make it up to us? :tick:
    You ruined [it], how are you going to make it up for us? :cross:

    Is it the same?

    thanks guys

    Not the same -- only the first is correct.

    Hi

    You've ruined algo, so how are you going to make it up to us?
    e.g. Compensarnos por habernos hecho algo.

    You ruined algo, so how are you going to make up for it?
    e.g. Compensar los inconvenientes/las pérdidas (que nos ha causado).
