Simile is a kind of comparison between two unlike objects and it is made by using the words like and as.

He is as brave as a lion.

He carrie load like a donkey.

This simile is used for figurative language and it is the used by poets with great technique in their work.

Simile means when you compare something using like or as.

Well, a simile is a form of figurative language like metaphors and personification.

A similie is a comparison of two objects or ideas, by using the words, 'like' or 'as'.

Some examples I thought of could include, "He was as slow as a snail" or "He walks like a flamingo".
