Hellllllllllllo :D ,

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


You [u]have grown [/u]since the last time I saw you.

The government [u]has become [/u]more interested in arts education.

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

My English [u]has [/u]really [u]improved [/u]since I moved to Australia.

I would suggest that you first consult the 'lessons' section, or other Internet-based reference sources, for general explanations of the use and meaning of the perfect tense, and come back here later, as necessary, with more specific questions.
