Thank you very much for explaining about the past and present perfect. Now I have some knowledge about the past and present. More power to all the people behind this amazing video. Thank you very much English team.

This is the best way to improve my english that i have ever had.

thank you very much for this site i really enjoy the videos and i've learn many things that can help me to improve my english

What I've got from this part and the previous one that we only
can use Present perfect in 2 cases
If we' want to talk about events that happened in our lives
Or if we want to talk about unfinished actions !
I've been to Egypt last year
James's cleaned his room today
