I was wondering what's the difference between past simple&present perfect?

Hello Abdullahomer,

There's an explanation of this in the The past and the present section on our Talking about the past page. If you have any questions after reading that, please feel free to ask us.

All the best,

Hi guys! Thank you for this useful activity Actually, I have a question, in task 4, I don´t get it which is the difference between 1 and 4 because in the 4 question "keep" does not take S

Hello pineda08,

I'm not completely sure that I understand your question.

In question 1 the answer is 'keeps eating' because the subject is 'he', which is a third-person form and so the verb ends in 's'.

In question 4 the answer is 'keep talking' because the subject is 'you', which is a second-person form and so the verb does not end in 's'.

I remember one day, I was watching a football match and I listened to a supporter saying to a player " KEEP PLAYING! " and from that situation, I learnt this word.

Good Day Everyone:- Away from the that case of flag;moreover,irrespective of any other notice about the video, i verily liked the clear detailed accent, the vehicle whereby they presented the grammatical notion in addition to the funny spirit the characters were showing up. when all is and done, i would apply the same way of presenting grammar in front of my students. **** cheers****
