O David perdeu as chaves – de novo! Descubra por que usamos o present perfect para dizer isso em inglês no mini-podcast de hoje!

 

 

Frases no mini-podcast de hoje:

I’ve lost my keys.

lose – lost – lost / misplace – misplaced – misplaced

I’ve lost my keys. / I’ve misplaced my keys.

Last week, I lost my keys; but I found them under my bed.

It’s probably under your bed.

I’ve lost my keys. I don’t have my keys now. I can’t find my keys.

I’ve cut my finger.

Last week, I was preparing dinner and I cut my finger.

    Tim,
    I’ve lost my book on the bus.

    Perguntas:
    1- Neste caso real, esqueci o meu livro no “guarda-objetos” do banco do ônibus e nunca mais encontrei. É o caso de “lose” e não “misplace”, correto?
    2- Americanos usam expressões como perder a cabeça, perder a paciência, perder a calma? Se usam, estas frases ficariam no pretérito ou present perfect? E perder a vida? Poderia dizer “He has lost his life”?

    Thanks!

    David, In lst July I lost my mp3 player, so I had to buy another because I like listen to music everytime. But I’ve lost the new one.

    Reply
    • timandtammy

      That’s correct, José Luiz. You couldn’t use the present perfect in the first sentence, because it was a specific time in the past.

      Hello, Maria! In this sentence, you can’t use the Present Perfect (sorry 🙂 ) because you specified a time – while playing volleyball. So you need to say: I hurt my knee while playing volleyball.

      Hello, Alexandre. In this case, it would be best to say: I’ve lost my freedom because I got married.

      But if you specify a day WHEN you lost your freedom, then you need to use the simple past: I lost my freedom when I got married.
