เจอ /jəə/ and เห็น /hěn/

These two are actually pretty easy I think. Both words, in at least one of their definitions, means “to see.” I think the distinction between these words and how they are used (or confused) has more to do with our American/English language interpretation of being able “to see.”

I believe that เจอ is used more in the sense to meet/encounter or to find as in "Hah,mai juh" look for, but not find.

 

Maybe somebody can help me with the situation when you are looking at a TV program and want to say "Seen it already" I'm never sure whether to use doo or hen here.

Chasing girls can be expensive

But it's more expensive if you catch one

If you want to say that you have seen it already it is ดูแล้ว which is doo leaw

 

The word เห็น means to see something, eg an object. For example I saw him across the road ผมเห็นเขาอยู่ข้ามถนน pom hen kao yoo karm tanon

 

Hope this helps

เห็น is like see, I see your point (เห็นดวย), I see that dog (เห็นหมาตัวนั้น)

เจอ is like encountered/met/found, I've found the car (เจอรถแล้ว), I've haven't met Poo yet (ยังไม่เจอปู)

then there's หา as well, it's like to find/look for, find crabs (หาปูสิ), stop causing (looking for) problems (หยุดหาปัญหาสิ)

also ดู is like watch, I've seen this (movie) already (เคยดูเรื่องนี้แล้ว), watch over my son (ดูแล่ลูกน้อย)
