    Like = "similar to","the same as".
    '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?
