Today we are going to take a quick look at the Present Perfect. In the “Devil’s Bridge” episode, the devil says,
“I’ve kept my promise; now you keep yours.”
Among the many uses of the Present Perfect, one of the most common is:
Stating recent facts or announcing news.
Check out these examples:
- The president has resigned.
- The company has fired several employees.
- I’ve just bought a new car!
- The president has resigned yesterday.
- The company has fired several employees last year.
- I’ve just bought a new car a few minutes ago.
If you mention the time, use the Past Simple; never the Present Perfect.
