Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
"Perfect", gramatically speaking, means "past, completed", althought we don't always use them that way. But, simply:

Present perfect for an action that has happened in the past (before now): I have eaten there before; I have always enjoyed his company; I have finished my homework [the exact time of the action cannot be mentioned, as it may with the simple past].

Past perfect for an action that occured before another related past action: I had eaten before they arrived; I had always enjoyed his company before he insulted me; I had finished my homework by the time my favorite TV show came on.
I'd say present perfect for an action that has happened at some undetermined moment in the past; moreover, the present perfect is always related to the present, one way or the other.
I'd like to know the difference between past perfect and present perfect with clear and simple examples in courteous oganisation with respect to English grammer.

Thanks.
