Grammar 101 – Part 2 (Month 3)

Grammar 101

“I like…” vs “I’m like…” 💬💬💬

Have you ever come across someone who mixes up “I like…” and “I’m like…” wrongly? Have you have heard someone who uses these terms incorrectly that may lead to an unwanted miscommunication? Do you still find it difficult or confusing to differentiate these terms?

Every term in the English language has its own meaning and function, even the terms that are or sound almost identical. It may be fatal if you misuse a term, both in your conversations or written documents. 💬📄

So, what is the difference between “I like…” and “I’m like…”?

No worries! As always, we got you covered! 😊👍

📌 “I like…”

“I like” is simple present, and we use this to talk about what we like in general. After “I like”, you can use either the to form of the verb or the -ing form.

For example:

“I like to read,” or “I like reading.” 📖

There’s no difference. They’re both grammatically correct. ✅

This term may also show admiration or likeness towards someone or something.

For example:

“I like Michael Jackson.” 🎤🎶
“I like apples.” 🍎🍏

📌 “I’m like…”

“I’m like…” or “I am like…” is a term used as a preposition. Unlike the term “I like…”, this term doesn’t express what we like. It shows what we are like or what we resemble.

According to Dictionary.com, this term means:

“in like manner with; similarly to; in the manner characteristic of.”

This term’s main function is to show one’s resemblance towards something or someone.

For example:

I’m just like my father. 👦➡👨
I am like you: hilarious. 😁

We hope we were able to explain to you about the terms “I like…” and “I’m like…” clearly. It takes a lot of practice and dedication to excel in English grammar. Never stop practicing!⁣ 👍💪✊⁣
