using (simple past )without mentioning a specific time ?
I'm trying 2 understand when 2 use the simple past & when 2 use the present perfect, but still can't get it ....
I know that we should use the simple past when we mention a specific time but somtimes we use it without mentioning a specific time.
If someone has just explained to me something right now.
I can say:
I didn't understand ? or I have not understood?
but it seems that saying ( I didn't understand) sounds more natural & it's more used than ( I have not understood ) although according to the rule I supposed to use ( I have not understood ) .
If my understanding is right, could u explain 2 me why is that?
& could u give me more exapmles of using the simple past without mentioning a specific time in ur normal daily life.
Hope u understand my question & thank u in advance !
