#112 How to replace the word Look in English

Hi, everyone! I'm Georgiana, founder of My mission is to help you to speak English fluently.

Today you will learn how to replace the word "look" in a sentence if you want to be more concise. I'll give you an example, depending on the context. In the previous episodes, I gave several examples of terms or expressions that you may use instead of "look". So make sure that you listen to the earlier episodes as well.

By the way, if you are new here, visit my website to get the transcript of today's episode. Go to:

If you're already familiar with this show, please share it with your friends and family. That would make me very happy!

Tell your friends that my podcast is available everywhere on the internet.

You can find it on my website and many podcast apps like Spotify, iTunes, YouTube, Facebook, Soundcloud, etc.

Just look for "Speak English Now with Georgiana," and start learning English with me!"

We’ll start with the word to scan.


1)To scan

When we look over something quickly we "scan" it.

Let me explain.

Imagine you have to get out of the house, and you're in a hurry. Surprise, surprise, you can't find your keys or your sunglasses. By the way, that never happened to me. I was just kidding. Unfortunately, this occurs to me quite often.

So what do you do in this situation? You start looking for your keys or your sunglasses. Or you could also say that you're scanning the room for your keys. Can you see? That’s a more precise word to use in this situation.

We might scan a room at a party to see if our friend is there.


"I scanned the room to see if Mary was there."

"I need to scan some diagrams for my PowerPoint presentation."


2)To eye

The thing is that whenever we observe something we use our eyes, so this word is quite straightforward.

We use the word "eye" to express our interest in something.

We might eye the candies on the table even though we don't want the extra sugar.


"I have been eyeing that cake for hours now but I must resist, since I’m on a diet.

3)To examine

When we "examine" something, we inspect it closely.

A doctor might examine your body to make sure that you are healthy.


"Whenever I got a cut my mom examined it and then cleaned it for me."


4) To peer

When you can’t see something completely because your vision is obstructed, we can say that you are peering at it.



"The girl was jumping up and down trying to peer out the window."

"George carefully peered inside the box."


5) To witness

This word is similar to "watch". It means that you saw something your own eyes, usually an event.

This word is often used in the field of criminal justice to say that someone "witnessed" a crime.


"A friend told me she witnessed a crime last night.

"Jane returned to the witness stand. "
