AmatukaFormed from 'verb + you ni suru'

V = verb
 
dcIt looks like these examples from the DBX are for a different usage of this construct... 
mkdbx's examples are mostly "clause + you ni", indicating a purpose.  
mk...as opposed to 'verb + you ni suru/kokorogakeru etc.' = to try, to decide 
dcする and します are both "to do".
so するようにします
means "do-kind of-will do" ??
seems odd...
 
gtunak85I believe this way to say "try to do something" also means that the action is necessary or should be done. 
Miki# ある in the end of sentence is funny. You should delete this as you have #, 
Miki#, # Japanese is not natural. My suggestions are # あなたは、英語で自分の言うことを理解してもらえますか。 # 私は、私の言うことを人に理解してもらえなかった。
When I was a student, I took a test to translate "make oneself understood" into Japanese. If you answer like 自分自身を理解されるようにすることができる, you surely get "X" as the Japanese is not natural, even you can get the meaning.
 
bamboo4I agree, Miki-san 
moomoochoodoes this differ in meaning from Vte +miru? 
khyronMy understanding is that ようにする can be used also in cases where a prolonged, concerted undertaking may be involved. From questions I've asked friends, I might use it in cases where I might choose to say "endeavor to..." rather than when I might use "give it a try", where 「てみる」is more suitable. I don't think it's limited to that, but perhaps it sounds a bit "heavier" than just 「てみる」 which can sounds "light". For the 「てみる」 case, you might stop trying after trying just once.
