You can construct, you can destruct, and/or you can tell someone else how to do it and instruct.

Beyond the definition, which is fairly obvious in context, I prefer the ORIGIN.

Word History

Date of Origin 15th c.
The -struct of instruct occurs also in construction, destruction, structure, etc. It comes from the past participle of Latin struere ‘build’. In the case of instruct, combination with the prefix in- produced instruere ‘build, prepare, equip, teach’, whose past participle stem instruct- formed the basis of the English verb.
See also construct, destroy, instrument, structure

The OP's profile says that they live in Lagos, Nigeria. It is quite possible that English is not their first language.
