See vs Watch vs Look
Many students often make a mistake when using the verbs see, watch, and look.
All three verbs involve using your eyes.
However, they are used in different situations.
See – to have the ability to use your eyes; to notice something with your eyes; to meet someone

Look – turn your eyes toward something

Watch – to look at something for a period of time carefully
