Idiom of the Day: 

How come?

Como assim?????

Today we are going to take a quick look at the Present Perfect. In the "Devil’s Bridge" episode, the devil says, 

"I’ve kept my promise; now you keep yours."

Among the many uses of the Present Perfect, one of the most common is:

Stating recent facts or announcing news.

Check out these examples:

  • The president has resigned.
  • The company has fired several employees.
  • I’ve just bought a new car!

Never say:

  • The president has resigned yesterday.
  • The company has fired several employees last year.
  • I’ve just bought a new car a few minutes ago.

If you mention the time, use the Past Simple; never the Present Perfect.
