Should I Use the Present Perfect or the Past Simple?

Do you get confused about when to say I sat or I have sat, I ate or I have eaten and other sentences like these?

These sentences use the PRESENT PERFECT or the PAST SIMPLE. In this video I am going to help you understand the difference, practice with you and help you with a tip on how to remember.

REMEMBER if any of the conversation is difficult to understand you can turn on the subtitles with the "CC" button just below the screen. And, you can SLOW DOWN the speed of the video by clicking the "HD" button and choosing the playback speed. I recommend trying 0.75 or 0.5 and seeing what works best for you!

Hi, Tania.
I always listening your recording videos for my practice.
I have a question here.

I'm continuously listening only your channel, because I'd like to just be used to listen to one native English speaker's English. I'm wondering if it's good practice. How are you think about it? Or shold I listen including some other speakers?

Thank you.

Thanks my dear Teacher Tania. My name is Lourdes I from Honduras. I have been watching your videos for a week. I listen to each video twice and understand a little each day that I practice English. I'm happy because my goal is to speak English well, but I still don't speak English, I can't hold a dialogue. Thank you for helping me..

​We are very grateful. They (to be) so helpful to us while our mother was in the hospital. So why was the answer "Past Simple" not "Past Perfect"?
