    As and Like differences

    Good evening everyone!

    Today I have a little problem with "As" and "Like". Who could explain me when I should use "as" and where "like".
    I wanna see a good, complete answer with any nuances.

    Sorry for my bad english. If I have it, tell me it too)

    Re: As and Like differences

    I would rather see you form some sentences with both, and then we will comment.

    Who could explain to me when I should use "as" and "like"?
    I want to see....

    Re: As and Like differences

    "He is very good as writer", "I love animals, as foxes, rabbits and wolves", "I love this forum as a treasure of knowledge in English."

    Re: As and Like differences

    1. He is very good as a writer.
    2. I would use "like" there. I love animals like foxes, rabbits, and wolves.
    3. Yes.

    So would I.

    Also 'I love animals such as rabbits, cats and gerbils' (I'm not keen on foxes and wolves).
