Present Perfect

Change Over Time

We often use the Present Perfect to talk about change that has happened over a period of time.

I don't understand that Please explain the sentence to me by details and i read Gloses and i am not understand.

EXAMPLES:

You have grown since the last time I saw you.

The government has become more interested in arts education.

Japanese has become one of the most popular courses at the university since the Asian studies program was established.

My English has really improved since I moved to Australia.


bye
Pearl

Pearl's English has improved since she joined the forum.

Does that help?
