I am very grateful of you.

Please one anwwer more, now i thinks these sentences are persent perfect tenses in active phrase but i suspect that these fill the criteria of persent perfect tenses i.e. (The present perfect tense is a perfect tense used to express action that has been completed with respect to the present)

Hi,

The Present Perfect Simple connects the past and present. In other words it tells you for how long something has existed or from then till now.

I really absorb this lesson.
But does it always have to use present perfect tense when we use some word such as already, yet.... I mean when we communicate with people.
In my country, some people communicate and use the word "already" as always. They use it for some tense not PP. is this formal english? or its just for talking.!

Hi,

Perhaps you could give me some examples with sentences showing how you use 'already' 'yet'.

.
The words 'yet and 'already' are also used with other tenses and forms. For example:


I already know the answer.
He doesn't know the answer yet.
Do you know the answer yet?

I can already swim.
I can't swim yet.
Can you swim yet?

He's leaving already.
I'm not leaving yet.
You aren't leaving yet, are you?
You aren't leaving already, are you?

By the time he arrived, I had already eaten.
When he I arrived, I hadn't eaten yet.

Will you have already eaten when he arrives?

In American English, we frequently use those two words with the simple past tense:

I already gave it to him.
Did you give it to him yet?
He didn't give it to me yet.
.

Thanks yankee! I understood it. because when I use it every time, I think it must be present perfect so I try to adapt it into present perfect tense. Im tending to change my English grammar. anyways thanks again.
