    like/ as

    hello teachers,

    when do you use "like" and when "as" I'm not sure of the rule...

    eg. He works like a plumber.
    he works as a plumber

    eg. he is used as a modifier
    he is used like a modifier

    thanks in advance

    He works like a plumber = he isn't a plumber but works in a similar way (expensive and late )

    He works as a plumber = he is one
