- Daha önce golf oynamış gibiydi.


It looked like [to me] he played golf  before.


* In the sentence above, I came to a conclusion from “they way he plays golf ” that “he must have played golf before. ”


- Buraya ilk kez gelmiş gibiydiler.


It looked like [to me] they came here first time.



From the way they acted /reacted , it looked to me that they didn’t come here before.
