Present perfect и past simple 2 (I have done и I did)

Урок 14

Не используйте present perfect (I have done), когда вы говорите о завершенном (например, yesterday / ten minutes ago / in 2009 / when I was a child). Используйте для этого прошедшее время:

  • Paul and Lucy arrived ten minutes ago. (not have arrived)
  • Did you eat a lot of sweets when you were a child? (not have you eaten)
  • I got home late last night. I was very tired and went straight to bed.

Используйте прошедшее время, чтобы спросить When ... ? or What time ... ?:

  • When did your friends arrive? (not have ... arrived)
  • What time did you finish work?
