Hi experts and fellow club members,

Please consider this statement :
I have learnt Java this year
( Am I correct in my understanding that *this year* is still continuing so learning Java is also continuing at the time of someone speaking this.)

Similar example : I have lived in India for 20 years ( I am sure that this statement means - - - > This means I've lived in India for the last twenty years, I might still live here, I may move out)



Please help me in statement 1.

TIA

Thank you = Kudos

Hi sumit411!

Happy to help :-) Using the present perfect tense implies that the action is still continuing in some context, so in your first example, you are correct that since "this year" is still continuing, "learning Java" is still continuing to some extent. Here are a few articles that have more examples of the present perfect tense:


Hope that helps :-)
