present perfect with past simple in this sentence Hello! I'm talking to my friend and he said something like this: My family has visited me, my aunt with her children and husband came. Is this correct? Wouldn't it be better to write it like this: My family has visited me. My aunt with her children and husband came. Thank you in advance!

If the context is appropriate for the present perfect tense the expression might be said as: My family has visited me. My aunt has come with her children and husband. Nevertheless, I think this statement is supposed to be said in the past simple as the speaker is talking about a finished action which does not have any effects to the time of speaking.

You said he "said" . There are no commas or periods in spoken English.
