- For Teachers
could you please tell me the difference between these two sentences.
1)I wanted to see the soccer game at the stadium.
2) I wanted to watch the soccer game at the stadium.
But in this situation, could you please tell me if "see" can be used.
I want to see TV . or I like seeing TV.
I want to watch TV . or I like watching TV.
No. We "watch TV" but you can say that you "saw/watched something on TV".
I watched a fantastic programme on TV last night.
I saw a great programme on TV this morning.
I watched TV before I left for work today.
He likes to watch TV every evening before bed.
Did you see that great new drama on Channel 4 on Saturday night?
Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
kofufet, please note that a better title would have been 'see or watch the soccer game'.
