How long have you used a computer? How long did you work on a computer last week? This lesson will help you hear and understand more about present perfect and past time verbs. We use both in English to explain about time.
ESL lessons on computers help students at work, with school, and with family life in the U.S. Computers are everywhere, so let's use them to learn.
