    Re: I have had..

    NOT A TEACHER

    I have a pencil. - present simple

    I have had a pencil. - present perfect simple (though the example sentence seems quite strange to me - I cannot think of a situation I would use it, but that might be just my problem)

    Other examples:
    1)
    I have had this picture for 2 years.

    I have this picture, because I like the yellowish background.

    2)
    I have just had a shower.

    I have a shower every morning.

    Try to study the differences between the present simple and present perfect simple.

    Present Perfect Tense in which we connect present with (recent) past.

    Please follow the correct forms of written English on the forum:

    - Do not use textspeak, use full English words (ie do not use "pls", "thx" etc).
    - Capitalise the first letter of every new sentence.
    - One full stop at the end of a sentence is enough.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
