Read these dialogues between two roommates, Alice and Sue. Can you explain why Sue is using the present perfect while Alice is answering in the present continuous?


DIALOGUE 1

Sue: Alice, can we talk about books? I’ve just read that new book by Peter Podge, you know, our favourite writer.

Alice: You’ve read it? Just like that? I’ve been reading it for a week now and I’m still in Chapter 1. It’s so different from all his other books. It’s completely unreadable! And this small print!


DIALOGUE 2

Sue: Alice, I’ve written that essay for Professor Kaminski! 1000 words! Could you have a look at it before I print it?

Alice: You’ve finished? You’re impossible! I’ve been working on it all day and I don’t have more than 100 words.



  • Now read the explanation to see if you were right.
