We use "look" and "look like" to talk about appearances.

"look" is followed by an adjective:
  • She looks tired.
  • You look wonderful tonight.
  • He looks Italian.
"look like" is followed by a noun:
  • She looks like a kind lady.
  • I look like a gangster in this photo.
  • He looks like a banker.


We can also use the modal verbs of probabilty: must, might, could and can't.

We use "must" if we feel sure we are right:
  • He must be Spanish because he looks like a bullfighter.
  • She must be at least 50.
We use "might" and "could" to express possibilites:
  • She could be from a Scandanavian country.
  • She might be her sister. They look quite similar.
We use "can't" when we think something is impossible:
  • He can't be 40 surely. He looks much younger.
  • You can't be tired. You slept for 10 hours last night.

Hi Carlos,

The woman you have described is Nadia Comăneci. Have you heard of her? She must be the most famous gymnast in the world. I doubt you are into gymnastics though.
