    了 often used in the past tense.

    "了"= haber hecho algo . en la primera y la cuarta se dice "昨天" ,que significa "ayer". en otras frases se dice "ahora" o "mañana", entonces no hace falta “了”

    了 only used in past tense and perfect tense, such as:
    你吃早饭了吗? Have you had your breakfast?
    我吃过了 I have had my breakfast.
    做好了、可以了 It's done
    去过了 I've been there
    行了,别说了 Alright(Fine), stop talking, be quiet
    够了 Enough!
    得了吧 come on, stop it.
    算了吧 Forget it.
    我去不了liao3了le1 I can't make it, I can't go (there).
    他成功了 He made it.
    他知道了 He knew it.
    他不行了 He is dying
    我受不了liao3了le1 I can't put up with it.
    他吐了 He has been sick/puked
    特殊用法:不了liao3了liao3之 actually it's another meaning of 了le1, and it sounds differently. It means something end up with nothing, no outcome

    "了“ done
