Hello Amel,
'Look like' usually refers to something which is physically similar:
'I look like my father: we're both tall, brown-haired and slim.'
It can also be used to talk about probability:
'It looks like United will win the match.'
'Look' is a verb which describes what you do with your eyes.
'Look at this picture - it's beautiful, isn't it?'
'Such as' is used when you want to give some examples:
'I like active hobbies, such as cycling, running and playing football.'
I hope that helps you.
Best wishes,

Where is the end of video?

Hello Prime,
I'm afraid I don't quite understand.  The video ends with the words 'listen out for it', and then the episode continues in Scene 2 (use the 'next' button above the video window).

Thank you for this great site

hi there, i am new to this family please help me out to improve my English

Hi there,
I am new here. Your web is really superb! i might end up wasting my work hours by learning english..I'd love to learn more by downloading your video and make it mp3, so i can listen and practice how to pronounce the word at home. Is there any download link? I have no problem downloading the mp3..but only the video.

Hi Tim,
Thanks for the nice comment, but be careful your boss doesn't catch you studying English when you should be working!
I'm afraid that for copyright reasons we can't make 'Word on the Street' available for download. I'm afraid you'll have to be connected to the internet whenever you want to watch it.
Best wishes,
