English: Do people say you look like your mum or dad?
Czenglish: People say I look exactly the same like my mum.
English: Oh, you should say you look exactly the same as your mum.
Czenglish: So I can say either ‘I look like my mum’ or ‘I look the same as my mum’?
English: Yes!

In comparative sentences we often use the word like. For instance:
– ‘It smells like something is burning.’
– ‘It sounds like you are improving.’

‘The same’ must be followed by ‘as’ however.

– ‘It sounds the same as before.’
– ‘We speak more or less the same language as them.’
