    Re: Hi From Germany

    I have never met anyone famous before.

    Here, you have used the present perfect. By using this tense, you mean in the sentence that you have never seen a famous person in your whole lifetime (i.e. up till now).
    and
    i go shopping at least twice a week

    Here, you have used the present simple to express a habit: (It is my habit that I go shopping twice a week.)
