The reason why I started to like Russian is that in Russian you can express yourself with just two or three word sentence
Apparently, кажется means "it seems that" while похоже means "it looks like"
So very similar, but there is a difference.
I used here verb "looks" and duo marked it as wrong, recommend me to use verb "seems"..Still struggling with this.
I'm not english native, but that sentence seems weird to me. Is it uncommon maybe? I would have simply said "It looks like it's time to go home".
I suspect it's because "Похоже" more literally means "looks like". But that's just a guess.
I think the correct way of saying that is "It looks like". I don't know if it seems like it's time to go home works in english, as I'm not a native, but I've not heard of that version before.
