    Thumbs up I have a Question that using a as...as

    hello~

    These day I studied about As.
    However, I confused some meaning,
    For example,

    as long as
    as far as
    as low as
    as little as
    as good as
    as soon as
    as well as
    as diffult as ..
    ..etc

    I know some words are emphasize that word.
    and 'as long as' can use like if.
    could you explan to me more clearly?

    Use as. . .as to show a similarity:

    as long as
    => Mary's hair is as long as Jan's hair! <same length>

    as far as
    => The store is as far as the library. <same distance>

    as low as
    => This table is as low as that chair. <same height>

    as little as
    => She gave me as little as she could give. <the smallest portion>

    as good as
    => They are as good as Pat. <same level of skill>

    as soon as
    => See you as soon as I can (see you). <the nearest date/time from now>

    as well as
    => They speak as well as you (speak). <same level of skill>
    => I'll take this as well as this. <and;also>

    as difficult as
    => English is as difficult as math. <same level of difficulty>
