See - look - look What is the difference?


“Seeing” means the basic ability: Our eyes work and we see!

preterite: I saw, you saw, he saw ...

Perfect: I have seen.

"To look" is used a lot in southern Germany, e.g. Bavaria, and in Austria. In English one usually says "to look". It means that you are looking at a certain target, in a certain direction.

"Look there!" Look what's there!

"We look in the book." Let's have a look at the book.

conjugation: I look, you look ...

preterite: I looked, you looked ...

Perfect: I have looked.

"We look out of the window." We're looking out of the window.
"Did you look at the clock?" Have you had a look at the clock?
