    Re: see or watch

    Hi, Why not this; "I watched you going through the narrow lane."
    You could use "I was watching you going......" but the former reads better and is better English unless you are going to go on to say "I was watching you going...... when something else happened"

    "You get the ticket, I will watch out/look out for the train."
