    Question past simple or present perfect

    Which is more correct to say in British English "I am writing to you because I heard you were looking for a penfriend "or "I am writing to you because I have heard you were looking for a penfriend"

    Re: past simple or present perfect

    Welcome to the forums, Tatjana.

    There's no difference, and your new penfriend will be delighted to hear from you whichever tense you use.
