Structure: ‘Like vs As’

Fly High English - Structure

This time in our structure help we talk about the difference between two prepositions, ‘like’ and ‘as’. Don’t confuse the verb ‘like’ with the preposition ‘like’. The verb ‘like’ is a regular verb, is very common and has a different meaning than the preposition ‘like’. The verb ‘like’ follows our normal sentence word order for verbs (subject + verb + object + place + time). Look at the diagram below to see the difference between these two prepositions, then try to write some examples for yourself.
