This time, Stephen's left 'holding the baby'... or the dog, anyway!

Task 1

Task 2

Task 3


We use 'look' before an adjective:

     Poppy looks lovely.  ('looks' + adjective)

We use 'look like' before a noun or a clause:

     Poppy looks like a film star.  ('looks like' + noun)
     Poppy looks like she's enjoying her bath.  ('looks like' + clause)




Hello British Council Team,

I would want to know the difference between "look" and "seem" in this case. The meaning is similar in spanish language ("parece"), but I don't know if there is a grammar difference or anything else. Could you help me?

Thank you very much indeed,


Hello suso,

The two verbs are used largely interchangeably in the context of describing the impression you get from something. However, 'look' requires some visual element. If I spoke to someone on the phone they I could say 'They seemed angry' but not 'They looked angry' as I could not see them.

To show their love for their pets, people give them treats, bring them in parks to do sport. In short, they take care of their health, make a lot of hugs.
It looks like the advert will be for Poppy.

What is the filming all about??

They take them to park, give them food...
Yes,For example we both love play with balls.
I think it will be for dog food

they are so nice!!! funny video, it made me smiling!!! Thanks!

Poppy is very cute but it is difficult to care of a dog. And the video is very enjoyable.

Thank you.
