Today's Topic
How to use みたい in Japanese

1.N+みたい
➡︎It is basically means “look like N” but if the sentence says about “sound” it can be “sound like”, and if the sentence says about “smell” it can be “smell like”. 

2.N1+みたいな+N2
➡︎N2 like/look like/taste like/sound like etc N1

the verb is depend on N2. 
 
3.N1+みたいに+N2
➡︎N2 can be object for the subject of the sentence.

This hard to understand so let’s see some sentences!!

Example.1
彼の筋肉は岩みたいです(*゚∀゚*)
kare no kinniku wa iwa mitai desu
His muscle is like a rock.

岩 is a noun. so “noun+みたい”  pattern!

*筋肉(きんにく)
muscle
*岩(いわ)
rock

Example.2
ブルブルちゃんは10分後に来るみたいですo(`ω´ )o
buruburu-chan wa jippungo ni kuru mitai desu
Buruburu seems to come in 10 minutes.

That sounds interesting name btw XD haha

Example.3
ユーキみたいに日本語がうまくなりたい!(´∀`)
Yuki mitai ni nihongo ga umaku naritai
I want to be good at speaking Japanese like Yuki.

This means the person who said that is not good at Japanese compare to Yuki.
日本語 is the object in the sentence.(subject is 私 even though it is hidden).
私はユーキみたいに日本語がうまくなりたい. is the same sentence.

Then, please keep following me!!XD haha

Example.4
私はあなたみたいに上手に歌えない。♪(´ε` )
watashi wa anata mitaini jouzu ni uta ga utaenai
I cannot sing well like you.

Example.5
