LOOK LIKE: meaning and examples

Good morning. Today's verb phrase is: look like We use it: to ask for a description or an opinion of the physical characteristics of someone or something. Notice that the words look like are used in the question but not usually in the answer. We use the verb be in the answer to give the description. The word like is NOT a verb. It is a preposition. Example 1 A: What does your sister look like? B: She is tall. She's got long, brown hair and blue eyes. Example 2 A: I bought a new pair of shoes. B: Oh yes? What do they look like? A: They are red, high-heeled, designer sandals. I'm going to wear them to the party on Saturday night. Next week we'll look at adjective order.
