In the following sentence are both the Present Simple and Past Simple correct?
They were/ are in the USA for two months to visit their family.
I feel the Simple Present is not right..
Can you say to put out a cigarette?
Thank you so much
You can use the Present Simple if the subject is still in the USA. Personally I'd say:
They are in the USA for two months visiting their family
but the form you have used may also be correct.
And yes, you can put out a cigarette.
