Grade 10 Grammar Lesson 4 Present perfect and past simple (2)

  •  Just and already suggest completed activities. We use yet in negatives and questions.
  •  Lately and recently mean ‘in the past few days or weeks’.
  •  So far and up to now suggest a period lasting up to the present time.
  •  When we use time adverbs that talk about finished periods of time, we use the past simple rather than the present perfect.
