Hi, I am having problems using comparisons, I will appreciate if you can explain me what is the difference between "like" an "as".
Like = "similar to","the same as".Originally Posted by relizundia1
'Like' is followed by a noun (like a palace), a pronoun (like me), or ing (like walking).
What a beautiful house! It's like a palace.
what does Sandra do? She is a teacher, like me.
Be careful! the floor has been polished. It's like walking on ice.
Sometimes like = For example
Some sports, like motor racing, can be dangerous.
As- We use "As" before a subject+ verb
I left everything as I found it.
They did as they promised.
As you know, as I said, as she expected, as I thought etc.
Compare "like" and "As" in these two sentences:
You should have done it like this. (like + pronoun)
You should have done it as I showed you. (as + subject + verb)
Is that satisfied you?
