    Cool PP

    Hello!

    Is the use of the Present Perfect correct in this case?:

    (A and B meet for the first time).

    A says to B: Nice to meet you, your brother has told me much about you.

    Thank you

    (The tense is correct, but there's a comma splice. You need to make that two sentences.)
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
