    Hello,
    As I said before, I'm attending an English class at the moment so I've got a lot of homework to do. Is is possible to make this thread to be mine What I mean is that I'll post parts of my homework in here and. if you want, you can correct me. Please

    My fist execise is about like vs. as

    1. He walks like a duck.
    2. The results of the exam came like a surprise to me.
    3. As we were looking up at the sky we saw a comet.
    4. That sounds like a true story.
    5. As he hadn't revised for the exam, he couldn't answer the question.
    6. I would describe the film as interesting but a bit long.
    7. What is your teacher like?
    8. I work as a waiter in a big restaurant and I work like a dog.

    Second exercise:
    I have to use the correct form of: like, be like, look like, would like.

    1. What was the concert like?
    2. I think you look like your father; you've got his nose.
    3. Would you like to be a millionaire?

    Re: My homework

    Hi Monica, and welcome to Using English.

    Generally we don't correct homework before you turn it in. If you have questions about questions that were marked wrong, you can post here for more information.

    That said, there is one mistake in the first set, and in the second set, there are three mistakes. It's up to you to find them, though.
    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.

    Can you please tell me if there is any mistakes. Thank you!

    "The captain had not believed their story at first. After all they could have been easily hitched a ride with a passing lorry driver. What was more difficult to explain was the fact that even though they were been missing for only a few hours, when they had been found they all would have long beards as if they hadn't been shaved for six months or more. They had all been absolutely clean shaved when they disappeared."

    Re: My homework

    M0N!CA,

    When in doubt, look up words in dictionaries and read the meanings and examples provided by them.
    Ive never been reprimanded for consulting dictionaries while doing my homework.

    Are you sure that "summary" is a verb?
