I encounter a lot of people in technical writing circles who stumble on this phrase, which can unfairly affect professional perception:
How does it look like?
This isn’t grammatically correct, and sounds clumsy to native speakers. We’d likely say:
What does it look like?
This invites you to describe what you’re seeing, or to compare it to something else. You might reply with “it looks like a forest with green trees” or “it looks just like the Black Forest in Germany”.
Another form is:
How does it look?
This is more of a judgement or a summary. You might say “it looks pretty”.
I empathise with people learning English. Granted it makes more sense than some other European languages, but it still has its quirks.
