文字稿

Hi, everyone. Welcome back to English In A Minute.

Peep, peer and glimpse are all verbs of sight that mean 'look at something', but are used in different situations.

Let's look at some examples: My friend peeped at my test answers.

This verb means 'to look at something quickly and secretively'.

I peered at the document trying to understand it.

Peer means 'to look at something intently or carefully in detail'.

It can also be used in another way.

I was peering at the clock in the distance.

This example means that I had difficulty reading the clock. Maybe the clock was very small or I have bad eyesight.

I glimpsed the sunlight through the trees.

Glimpse means 'to see something for a short time', or 'to only see part of something'.

We often use glimpse as a noun with the verb 'catch'.

For example, I caught a glimpse of Phil as he left the office.

Bye, everyone.
