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

I can’t see the screen.
I’m going to see my friend tomorrow.
I saw a play at the theater last weekend.

 

Look – turn your eyes toward something

Please look at the photo.
If you look at the top of the page, you will see the name of the restaurant.
When I looked at the dog, he stopped barking.

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

I watch TV everyday.
I want to watch a movie this weekend.
We watched a soccer match on Tuesday.
