Spanish Question I have been having trouble with how to express this idea in Spanish: example sentences would be: "Do I look like and idiot wearing this suit?" You look like your father when he was your age He is tall like a giant. "his mind is like a sponge. He absorbs so much information" You studied like a madman for the last exam If these examples make sense, how do you effectively compare two things against each other using the English equivalent of 'like' in a sentence for Spanish? Or in Spanish, would I use "como" to express this idea perhaps? Thank you!

Hola Earl! "Do I look like and idiot wearing this suit?" "¿Me veo como un idiota usando este traje?"; "¿Parezco un idiota con este traje?". You look like your father when he was your age "Te pareces a tu padre cuando él tenía tu edad"; "Te ves como tu padre cuando tenía tu edad". "He is tall like a giant". "Él es alto como un gigante"; "Él es alto cual gigante". "his mind is like a sponge. He absorbs so much information" "Su mente es como una esponja. Él absorbe muchísima información". "You studied like a madman for the last exam" "Estudiaste como un loco para el último exámen". Espero que te ayude! :)

Do I look like and idiot wearing this suit? = ¿parezco un idiota vistiendo este traje? You look like your father when he was your age = te pareces a tu padre cuando el tenía tu edad He is tall like a giant = él es alto como un gigante his mind is like a sponge. He absorbs so much information = su mente es como una esponja, él absorve demasiada información You studied like a madman for the last exam = tú estudiaste como un loco para el último examen I hop its useful
