Anybody has a good explanation (or a link to an explanation) of when to use AS and when to use Like for comparisons or for clauses?
Much appreciated.

LIKE is used to compare equal things specially nouns.

As is used to comapre actions.

He is as tall as I am.

Like cycles, scooters have 2 wheels.

hope it explains.

But go to this website and learn as much as you can

Awesome post.

As can also be used when referring to a position
eg : he works there as a janitor (position of a janitor)
he works there like a janitor (the way a janitor does)

both are correct.
