  • The boy on the beach secretly glanced at the girls on the beach under the cover of dark sunglasses.
  • Maria and Tom exchanged glances as they sat across from each other in the classroom. (This means that they probably like each other in romantic fashion.)
  • You can take a very quick glance at the sun, but don't stare at it. It will burn your eyes!
  • I caught a glance of myself as I passed by the store window. (I saw a reflection of myself in the glass. This sentence uses "glance" as a noun.)
