When you investigate something, you try to find out what happened. It is a more formal word that you use when talking about crime, politics, things involving the police and so on. Here are some examples:
The police are still investigating how the accident happened.
The corrupt politician is being investigated.
Officials investigated the fire but couldn’t find the cause of the explosion.
If you want to talk more informally, for example when you are investigating something, you would be more likely to use the word, “look into”. For example:
I’m looking into studying English in Canada.
He looked into buying his own home, but decided renting was better for now.
Can you use either “investigate” or “look into” in a sentence?
