Imitate = do something in exactly the same way that someone else does it: ‘Have you heard him trying to imitate an Englishman speaking French?’ ‘He walks as if he is trying to imitate Donald Duck.’

Copy = do the same thing as someone else: ‘As soon as I began cycling to work, people started copying me.’ ‘His little sister wants to copy him all the time.’
