Student or Learner
I need your help, can you tell me if the following sentences are correct?:
-I've recently started ( or started?) a new job.
-Since I've discovered (or discovered?) this new coffee machine, I've been drinking 10 cups of coffee a day!
Seen on TV:
A: I think he's lost his talent.
B: Yes, he lost it.
What does A use the present perfect and B the past simple. Why do they not use the same tense?
Thanks a lot
"Since I discovered this new coffee machine, I have been drinking..."
Thank you bhaisahab.
Regarding the above example, I have one more question.
Why do we say?:
-"Since I"ve seen you (and not "saw") many things have happened.
-Since I discovered (and not have discovered)this new coffee machine, I have been drinking...
Thank you very much!
And, speaking of lyrics, does the same apply to The Beatles' hit, "Don't bother me"? (No, I don't want to bother you. ) I mean the following line:
"Since she's been gone I want no one to talk to me."
