"Het dier zoekt water."
Translation:The animal is searching for water.
Can "zoek" also mean "seek"? I ask this because these words are quite similar (I think)
I didn't got it... I'm not a native speaker of english, so somebody can explain me this question?
Imagine a lion in Africa. On a hot day it will look for water. ...the animal looks for water or the animal searches for water. Does that help?
Ok, that's fine and both answers should be accepted. However in my opinion look for or seeks should be preferred in this context over search for and thus should be used in exercises where you have to select words only. I'm not a native though so please correct me if I'm wrong.
