My studies about "present perfect"

Hi,
Today I was reading about "present perfect topic". I knew about it,
but I'd like learn more this grammar topic.

First, I've did a comparation with "simple past" and "presente perfect" topic.
I look some differences, for example: I use "present perfect" when the situation which I don't know when happened, but It's in the past.
In the future, I'll use this "present perfect" to get vocabulary and be normally when I can writting or speak better.

Thanks for reading.

Great job Allan. There are so many different grammar rules and present perfect is a great way to start. You can even develop your own example of present perfect to practice your skills.
