Stefan is in the office of Frau Schulz

Stefan

Good day, Frau Schulz.Do you have a moment?

Frau Schulz

Naturally.What is it?

Stefan

I didnít understand the last chapter in the German book.

Frau Schulz

What didnít you understand then?

Did you read the whole chapter?

Stefan

Sure. I always read the whole chapter.

Frau Schulz

And did you do the exercises?

Stefan

Yes, well Ö no.I didnít have much time.

I was still working on my English course,

read a whole novel,

did physics homework, and studied for a test in art.

 

Frau Schulz

Stefan, you need a day with 30 hours.

What didnít you understand then?

Stefan

The perfect.

Frau Schulz

Well, one uses the perfect when one speaks about the past.

For example: When I was a kid I played with my friend (f).

For my birthday I received a little cat.

Stefan

I have also always wanted a little cat.

Unfortunately I never received one.

But I sometimes visited my grandparents.

They had a dog and two cats.

Frau Schulz

Stefan, you use the perfect entirely perfectly.
