Diffrentiate Between 'see' And 'watch'. by Mariojane(f): 9:53am On Nov 02, 2015
several times my friends says let's go 'see' a movie at the cinema but funny enough whenever i use the word 'watch' they say the correct word is 'see' not 'watch'.
can someone tell me why we use 'see' not 'watch' cos to me watch is the correct word.

ENGLISH IS SO COMPLICATED.

To my own understanding...

Simply

To "see" something is to just catch a glimpse of that thing while to "watch" is to look/examine something Intently.
