I need some help please! I've already got an answer from Heidita (thanks a lot) but I'd like to have some more opinions please! Thanxxx
Can you confirm the following analyses are right, please?:
-I lived in Italy for 5 years ( means that I don't live there anymore) That's right.
-I've lived in Italy for 5 years(-means that I'm still living there Can also be used when the action has just ended/ also means that I've had the experience of living in Italy For a past experience it would be more usual to use the Simple Past, I lived in Italy)
I've been living in Italy for 5 years (I'm still living in Italy). Can be used for an action that is happening now or that has just finished or about to.
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?" ['I have forgotten' is used more in British English. It's not so common to say 'I forgot' in use as the Present Perfect, but it can have that meaning in American English.
I have have forgotten my, please open the door. (Typical British English)
I forgot my key, please open the door. (OK in American English)
Thanks a lot for your help!!
