These three verbs are easily confused as they describe what we do with our eyes.

• “See” means to notice or become aware of someone or something by using your eyes. You can use 'see' if you are talking about something that your eyes simply observe
- I see a cat in the window.
- Can you see my house over the cliff?
- See you tomorrow.

• “Look” means to direct your eyes in a particular direction or at something.
- Look at me while I am speaking.
- He looked at his watch and told me the time.
- When you dance, don't look down.

• “Watch” means to look at someone or something for an amount of time and pay attention to what is happening. If you are paying attention to something, like a game or television program, for a period of time use “watch.”
- All day long I just watched TV yesterday.
- Do you like watching talk shows?
