Hi there, I need your help. I would like to learn what the different is between '' I told you and I have told you.''
This is something I really did not understand,where can we use these sentence? I will be glad to hear which one of them is correct...... thank you so much. cagdas
When you say 'I told you' you are saying that you told a person on a specific occasion. For Example: I told you to do your homework yesterday. (In this case it was yesterday that the person was told.)

I have told you means that the person was told but there is no reference to when the person was told. For example: I have told you time and time again to do your homework.
