What is the difference between saying "She went like this" and "She did like this"? Why is "went" used in this sentence?
When imitating someone or retelling an action that was done by another person, it is common to use the verb "go". However since the action has already happened, the past tense form must be used, so this is why he uses "went". It is not correct to use the verb "did" in this context because it isn't common to use the verb "do" in a situation like this. "Go" is the main verb that is used when imitating someone's actions.
