    Unhappy I don't know the meaning of" like"

    In the" Charlie and Lola " series,It was written that Lola says,"Me and Morten are going to do lot of things together,like have a tea party".What Does "like" here mean?
    It used as verb(=love) or proposition(-such as or other meaning)?
    Please tell me "like" here.

    Re: I don't know the meaning of" like"

    In this case, it means "such as" or "for example."
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    NOT A TEACHER


    Yuyu,


    I am sure that you know that "Me and Morten" is

    "horrible" English. Perhaps other learners might not know

    that one should say "Morten and I ...."

    THANK YOU & HAVE A NICE DAY
