In the video JULIA BOORSTIN -- Interview a Broadcaster! -- American English (0:34 to 1:20), a reporter from an American news television channel mentions that it's not a good idea to use the word 'like'.
I've tried to find some information about it but nothing comes up in Google. Does anyone know why 'like' shouldn't be used and in what contexts it's invalid?
Below the line is my first guess, but it's completely wrong and can be ignored:
I assume that it's not about this kind of sentence:
I like learning.
But it's more about this kind of sentences:
- Flying a plane is like driving a car but it's a bit more complicated.
- You can multiply a number by two to have an even number, like 3*2=6.
