The present perfect – most hated tense in the world 😊 Something that started in the past and has an effect on the “now”.

I am not hungry – I have just eaten.

The football went through the window – the kids have broken the window.

The car is in the river – I’ve driven the car into the river.

I was three minutes late – I have just missed the bus.

I have just received your letter.  (American English:  I just received your letter)

I’ve broken my arm. It is in a cast.

I have never eaten sushi. I have never been to the USA. I have been to Italy 3 times.

Nota bene: the present perfect is not used consistently in the USA. People might say „I work here for three years“, which would be terribly wrong in the UK.
