    So far I have studied in

    Hello,

    *self-made*

    - So far, I have studied English in England, studied France in France and studied history in Italy.

    I have searched for the difference between the simple and present perfect, but I still cannot decide if I must use the present perfect or not.

    Thanks.

    It's OK with the change I have made. The second and third "studied" are not necessary and I would omit them. It would not be correct in simple past.

    Agreed. 'So far' means you have not yet finished studying.

    Re: So far I have studied in

    I replied to this post, but it has disappeared. To repeat:

    Your verb is correct, but the rest is not.

    So far, I have studied English in England, French in France, and history in Italy.
