"See", "look at", or "watch"

Below I wrote some explanations for those words and I would like teachers and friends to correct and enrich with their opinions.

“See” - Just when the eyes are open, see things, persons, etc.

“Look at” - A look quickly at someone or something and then look away.

“Watch” - Watch the news on TV and is paying attention to the news program.


And remember, too, that sometimes “I see” = “I understand.”

Depending on the phrase, each word, can get several meanings:

see = look; check; note; observe; etc
look = contemplate; examine; appearance; glance; etc.
watch = oversee; heed; care; wristwatch; etc.

Do you all agree with me?


Many words in English are used like this, Hensiq.
Conversely different words can often be used to indicate he same thing,

Hi Hensiq,

You are quite right - that’s the way it is. That’s why whenever you learn a new word, find out what it means within a context. Learn it as part of a sentence rather than just an isolated word in a dictionary. Some dictionaries of course do this for you and one of the pest is the OXFORD Learner’s Dictionary.


Thanks, Beesnees and Alan by the comments.
How very hard is to learn another language without talk, daily, with native speakers.
We can easily study grammar rules. But, learn on the behavior each word in each sentence or idiomatic expressions, is very difficult.
It’s necessary that we spend some time living in the country where speak that language. Thus, we can improve our proficiency.
I want make the English language as my second language to apply it in all my activities.
And I’m here to achieve my goal!
