    Red face as & like

    Which would be a good explanation to the difference in usage between "as" and "Like"? I'm in a hurry and I think of some uses but for example in the sentence:

    eg. I've tried to go on like I never knew you

    Could we use "as" in this context?

    thanks in advance

    Hi LUPITA,

    "As" will not work alone.

    "I`ve tried to go on as though I never knew you."
    "I`ve tried to go on as if I never knew you."

    Those work for me!

    thank you very much.
    so I understand that like is the only possibility in this context?
