I have some problems when I'm translating my language to english or english in to my language.
I sometimes watch videos with english subtitles, and I often see that they are using Present Perfect Simple or Past Simple interchangable. Even when there is a result of the past action I see that they are using Past Simple.
I went through many forums with similar topic. But the answear is (when the time appears, for example in 1998 somebody arrived in London)
It's just annoying that I don't know which one should I use or how should I interpret them.
I wanted to write something a had in my mind for a long time, but the problem appeared when I had to choose one of these tenses. Past Simple or Present Perfect Simple. Both with past times but one of them has a result in real time, so why they use Past Simple?
