    As if, like and as

    As if:


    We use as if to make comparisons.

    We use as if to talk about an imaginary situation that may not be true but that is likely or possible.

    -It looks as if they've had a shock.


    In informal English, like can be used in a similar way to as if, though it is not always considered correct in formal contexts.

    -It felt like it could snow at any minute.


    We use as with a noun to refer to the role or purpose of a person or thing.

    -I worked as a waiter when I was a student. Most of us did.

    NOT: I worked like a waiter......

    We don't use as + noun to mean "similar to". We use like + noun.

    -It's almost like a real beach, but it's actually artificial.

    NOT: It's almost as a real beach .......
