1) It can be part of a comparison : LIKE , like + noun or pronoun ;
ex : ‘I wanna dance like you!'
ex : He looks like his father so much !
BEWARE! As learners, try to avoid using like before a clause (subject + verb), especially if you have to take exams or if your main destination isn't the United States; use ‘as', instead.
ex : As he said, she'll never be forgotten!
2) TO LIKE = a verb
* most of the time, it will be followed by an - ing form:
ex : I like singing and dancing with my friends ; I like talking and hanging around with them , too...
* I would like to : in the conditional, like is followed by the infinitive;
ex : He would like to work with his mentor forever...
3) TO BE LIKELY : expresses what might happen, what is probable.
- used with a personal subject:
ex : Pat is likely to come to the meeting... He said he'd do his best to be on time!
- used with an impersonal subject:
ex : There's likely to be a snow storm in the coming days.
Hard luck, little boy ... Wipe your tears... I'll help you work twice as much, and you'll succeed... Your Mom loves you!
Well! Now, you must be ready for the test ! Good luck to all of you!
