Many people wrongly use these verbs as they are verbs related to vision. They cant be used interchangeably. Though they are vision related verbs, they have to be used appropriately depending on the situation.

See is a verb of perception. It is an involuntary and an effortless action. Do not use it in the continuousprogressive form seeing.

Example I saw Samantha at school yesterday. (casually you noted her presence)

Example John saw a good film yesterday. (to express that an action is completed, in this case, we are talking about watching the film. Watch can be used in plce of see in this example)

Example Kelly saw the doctor last eveng. (here, it means she visited the doctor)

Example I will see the Marketing team tomorrow. (it means you have an appointment)

Look is used when you want to give a particular direction to your eyes. When you look at something, it means you concentrate and focus on it. You see something specific at one time. Do not us the verb look in its progressivecontinuous form looking.

Example Look! Its snowing. (so you change the direction of your eys and look towards the window)

Example Look at th sky.

Watch is used when there is a movement involved. You concentrate on something for a long time, like a moviesport.

Example Im watchng an English movie.

Example Watch the kittens as they may run away.(pay attention to the kittens)
