  • in this video, I'm going to talk about some similar english verbs.

  • Look, see and watch.

  • A lot of students ask me the difference between these words.

  • So I'm going to make sure that this video will clear up any confusion.

  • Let's get started.

  • Mm 1st.

  • Let's start with look.

  • It is used as a regular verb.

  • We use look when we direct our eyes at something and pay attention to it.

  • Let's look at some examples.

  • The first sentence says, look at this old photo of me, I am directing your eyes to the photo.

  • I want you to pay attention to it with your eyes.

  • Look it's snowing outside in the same way I want someone to pay attention with their eyes at the snow outside.

  • Now I will talk about sea.

  • It is an irregular verb.

  • The past tense of C.

  • Is saw.

  • You should you see when you notice or become aware of something with your eyes, you are not looking for it, but you suddenly see it.

  • Let's look at some examples.

  • Let's look at the first sentence.

  • It says, I see an airplane in the sky.

  • The person didn't know that there was an airplane in the sky, but they saw it with their eyes.

  • So I see an airplane in the sky.

  • She suddenly saw a dog on the street in this example, C is used in the past tense.

  • Saw she suddenly saw a dog on the street.

  • She noticed it with her eyes.

  • Now I will talk about watch.

  • It is a regular verb.

  • Watch means to look at something for a long time and to pay attention to it right now.

  • You are watching my video.

  • Let's look at some example sentences, The first sentence says I love to watch my cat play.

  • This is something I like to do for a long time.

  • Look at and watch this happening.

  • The next sentence says I watched the football game last night again.

  • It's something that you watch or pay attention to with your eyes for a long period of time.

  • You can use watch or see when we talk about movies, tv and concerts.

  • You can say I watched a movie last night or you can say I saw a movie last night.

  • So the rules are not so strict and spoke in english about watching or seeing a movie or tv show.

  • Let's do a check up in this conversation.

  • There are two sentences in these sentences, we should use the verbs watch see and look.

  • Take a moment to think about where we use these verbs.

  • A says blink at the tv.

  • A is directing bee's eyes to use his eyes to look at the tv.

  • So again a says look at the tv, you can blink that new tv show.

  • So because this is a tv show, you can say see or watch in this case let's use watch, you can watch that new tv show and be says oh I blanket already since we already used watch let's use C.

  • In this case the past tense be says oh I saw it already.

  • Now, you know the difference between look, see and watch this video is not enough to master these expressions.

  • You need to keep practicing.

  • Thank you guys for watching this video and I'll see you in the next video.
