[英検対策] Look,See,Watch「見る」を使い分けるには

こんにちは、シェネンです。

 

「見る」という動詞には、look,see,watchなどあります。

 

意外とわからないこれらの使い分け!

 

今回は、どのようなケースで使い分けたら良いかをお話しします。

 

 

 

先ずは、look [looked]

 

“Look” is to direct your attention towards something.
“Look” is intentional, and it is often used in this form:: look + at + (object).

 

“look”は、何かに対してあなたの注意を向けて見るとき(能動的)に使います

よく look at + (object)  という形で使われることが多いです。

 

 

例えば、

Look at the sunset – it’s so beautiful!

Look at that strange man.

Look at the pictures I took on holiday.

・Don’t look at the sun with naked eye.

Look at me while I am speaking.

・He looked at his watch and told me the time.

・I looked at the photos of my family.

・I will look at the deserts before I order one.

・I am going to look for a new apartment. My apartment is too small.

・Don’t look at me!

・I am looking for my car keys. Have you seen them ?

・She is very shy, she won’t look you in the eye.

 

 

次に、see [saw]

 

See is to perceive with your eyes, but it is not intentional (you don’t “try” to see, it just happens)

“see”は物理的に見ることができることや、意図的に見るのではなく、偶然見てしまうような場合に使います

 

 

例えば、

・Did you see that bird?

・I saw you driving to work today.

・Can you see my house over the cliff?

・Bats can see very well in the dark.

・See you tomorrow.

・You may not see much in dim light.

・I saw a car accident while driving home from work.

・I saw your photo in the newspaper.

・My cat is very old, she can’t see well anymore.

・I saw one of my friends at the supermarket.

・I saw two students walking down the street.

 


See = Visit というケース

The verb see can also be used to mean to visit, or have an appointment with someone.

seeは、訪問したり、誰かとの約束をしたりすることを意味するためにも使用できます。

 

例えば、

 

・Janice saw a doctor yesterday.

・Peter will see his girlfriend tomorrow.

・Have you seen a specialist?

 

 

次に、Watch [watched]

 

Watch is to keep your eyes on something (usually something that is moving) for a long time. It is intentional.

watchは、意図的に長時間見続けている(動くものを見る)時に使われます

 

 

例えば、

・I’m watching TV.

・I watched the baseball game.

・I like watching the sun set every day.

・Please be quiet, I am trying to watch the world cup series.

・Do you like watching talk shows?

・I watched a good movie last night.

・I don’t usually watch the news in the mornings.
