    Look at/Take a look at

    I would like to ask if there is any difference between these two phrases.
    Are they absolutely interchangeable?

    Re: Look at/Take a look at

    In what context do you want to use these expressions?

    Give us at least a full sentence to consider.

    "Take a look at" seems a little more polite.
