May confuse meaning of ‘feel’ I feel like a carrot I feel like going to the bar (meaning I want) Deal with this alternative use if it comes up. Ss may need clarification that looks like can be followed by a noun or a phrase with verb but that a noun can only come after like and NOT as if.

It looks as if you made it yourself. Do I know you made it yourself? Do I think you made it yourself? Do I imagine from looking at it that you made it yourself? If it looks as if you made it yourself do I think you bought it in a shop?
