    Past simple and Present Perfect

    Hello there!

    I need some help please!

    Can you confirm the following analyses are right, please?:

    -I lived in Italy for 5 years ( means that I don't live there anymore)

    -I've lived in Italy for 5 years(-means that I'm still living there/ also means that I've had the experience of living in Italy)

    I've been living in Italy for 5 years (I'm still living in Italy)


    I also have some problems with the verb "forget" , do we sometimes say " I've forgotten something"? It doesn't sound really familiar to me. Do we always say "I forgot?"

    Thanks a lot for your help!!
