  • Dear Colloquium,

    Thanks for your comment in my Thread concerning 'until recently'.

    So...do you suggest that the Past Simple Tense is more appropriate than using the Present Perfect Tense for the below contex?

    'He worked there until recently'. ---> Correct!
    'He has worked there until recently' ----> Incorrect!

    Am I right here?

    Thanks again ^_____^

    This American teacher says there's no difference between them:

    And this British teacher says there's a difference:

    Though I've spent quite some time studying these phrases, I'm not sure I understand the use well.

    I'm hoping you can help me with this. Thank you in advance.
