Grammar:past simple vs present perfect tense
Petra Dawes left school six months ago.But she didn’t go straight on to university after the holiday like a lot of her schoolmates. In September she did something she had wanted to do for some time.She took a gap year. Since then,she traveled to three different countries and spend between two and four week in each one.She didn’t learned three new languages though, because all the countries are French — speaking! But she started to learn some Italian, because Italy is her next stop — and she can’t wait. I always wanted to see Italy. It’s a country I’ll never visit, so I’m incredibly excited about it!.
