The difference between “like” and “as” is one of the tricky topics for many English learners. We should remember that “like” is a preposition and we use it to describe similarity. For example, “strong like a lion”. “As” is a conjunction and requires a subject and a verb after it. For example, He was late just as I expected. The word “as” has a few more meanings. The exercises on this page will help you practise the words “like” and “as” in sentences.
