One Point English Lesson: Look vs Look Like

Michael Uncategorized 1 Comment


Do you ever notice the shapes of clouds. When I was younger, I used to lie on the grass in the park and look up at the clouds. Sometimes they look like familiar things, like animals or flowers. When bad weather is coming, clouds can look ominous and scary.

Today, I want to show you the difference between using look and look like. I know this can be a confusing point for a lot of English Language students, but the rule is very easy to remember.  Look is followed by an adjective and look like is followed by a noun, or a noun phrase. Check out the lessongraphic above for some examples.
