If you’ve ever taken a language course, you know that good language teachers and trainers try to engage their students and get them to speak.

One of the most common is telling me about something they have seen. And there we have the stumbling block. What verb should they use? sehen (habegesehen), schauen (habe … geschaut), ansehen (habeangesehen), gucken (habegeguckt), luegen … (hagluegt).
