"See" "watch" and "look at"

Did you SEE that!?

These verbs can be confusing to use sometimes.
See is an inactive word. When your eyes are open, you do it without thinking.
“I see a car near the store.”
Look at is active. You must want to do it. But it is for a short time.
“Look at this dress.”
Watch is also active. You must want to do it but it is for a longer period of time. Usually you are looking in the same direction. (Movie, soccer game etc.)
“Let’s watch television.”
