Como = As, Like (co-moe)

Como is different than cómo- if it has an accent over the o it actually means “how”. It's only “as” or “like” if it doesn’t have an accent.

As in…

  • Como tú = Like you
  • Como mucho = As much
  • ¿Como qué? = Like what?
  • Eres exactamente como tu papá. = You’re exactly like your dad.
  • No soy tan bonita como tú. = I’m not as beautiful as you. You’ll often hear the words “tan” and “como” used like this to compare two things.
