(1) is correct, although I would prefer:

(1a) In English, we don't have many specific words or pronouns to show respect, as lots of other languages do.

(2) is not correct. To Use "unlike" rephrase to a form such as:

  • (3) Unlike lots of other languages, in English, we don't have many specific words or pronouns to show respect
  • (4) English is unlike lots of other languages, on that it does not have many specific words or pronouns to show respect.
