    Problems with Perfect Tenses

    Hello, my name is Gabi and now I'm trying to "refresh" my English knowledge.
    I've learned Perfect Tenses approx. 1000 times, but I still cannot memorize this field of grammar and the semantic differences between the Perfect Tenses forms. Could you give me some tips and tricks how would be possible to memorize this effectively. Thank you in advance for your kind help. Gabi

    Re: Problems with Perfect Tenses

    I think it is more effective to learn by doing than remembering rules. So I suggest doing exercises in the topic that you have problem with. This applies to any other grammar topic. Or you could makes sentences in the perfect tense and post them here for checking.

    Re: Problems with Perfect Tenses

    Perfect tense/aspect forms almost always have some idea of retrospection. The speaker is looking back from a past, present or future point in time over an earlier period of time extending up to that point.
