    Cool Present Perfect

    Hello!!
    Is this correct, please?

    -We use the present perfect to talk about a situation that sarted in the past and that is still true, present, real, today.

    -We also use the present perfect to talk or ask about someone's experience, if the person is alive.

    -We can also use the present perfect when we talk about something that happened in the past but we don't know when.

    Thank you very much
