Solutions for: App 281 / Simple Past or Present Perfect? (1)

Practise distinguishing which tense you need!
We use the simple past to talk about events that happened at a specific time in the past - signal words are: yesterday, in 2018, last week/year, a week/month ago.

We use the present perfect to talk about events that started in the past and are still ongoing or have a connection to the present moment - signal words are: today, already, yet, in the last months, this year, just, recently, have you ever...
Form the simple past with "ed" at the end of the verb but look out for irregular verbs like: buy-bought or see-saw. For example: I laughed....

Form the present perfect by using "have" and the 3rd form of the verb. Careful: Don't forget He/she/it need: has. For example: I have watched...He has bought...
