Hi Teachers,

Could you tell me if the given explanations for the verbs 'look and seem' are correct? If not will you suggest me a better one?

Be: She is happy with her new job. (What can I write here)

Look: She looks happy with her new job. (You noticed it with your eyes.)

Seem: She seems happy with her new job. (No eyesight is needed for the observation. We are making a guess about the situation after thinking about several factors to make a judgment about it.)

Thanks in advance

PS. These two sentences are from Cool Breeze, 'You noticed it with your eyes' and 'No eyesight is needed for the observation'.
