Here are some simple rules that will help deciding which word to use:

See is used as inactive word; you just see without any effort:

  • you have visual impression: "I can see my home over there", "I see trees of green"
  • you understand: "I see what you mean"

Look is used as active word, you make an effort to see:

  • you try to see: "look at this!" (maybe you have to turn your head or stand up)
  • you pay an attention: "to look for a baby"
  • you search for something: "you can look up the word in the dictionary"

Watch is also an active word; you also make an effort, but it is for a longer period of time:

  • "I'm watching "Star Trek", "I like to go to a zoo and watch tigers playing"
  • pay attention: Watch the kittens as they may run away.

Here's an example demonstrating the difference:

  • I'm looking, but I don't see it.
  • Back to examples:
  • I'm watching "Star Trek" — it is a continuous action;
  • Have you seen "Star Trek"? — it is a question if you ever seen it at all, or do you know about it;
  • It can be also formulated: Have you watched "Star Trek" all night?, and it will mean that you have spent all night watching a movie.

These sentences may give you some ideas:

I do not see the difference. Have you seen that man before?
Look, the boat is sinking. Take a look, you will like it.
I have been watching tv all night.

Do not say:
I go to see a movie (say: I am going to a movie)
I see a book yesterday (say: I read a book yesterday)
