Present Perfect with Just

In the example I gave, I said the following:

“The weather is fantastic. I’ve just spent the entire morning working on the porch. And I’m looking forward to doing more of that over the spring and summer.”

We use the present perfect with just to talk about something that happened in the recent past. 

Here are more examples:

  1. Dave says, “Have you been here long?” And Sarah says, “No. I’ve just got here.” 
  2. A boss says, “Have you finished it yet?” The worker says, “No, sorry, I’ve just started it. I’ll finish it soon though.”
  3. “My friend has just registered for a yoga class.”

You will also hear the past simple being used with just too. Here is an example: “My friend just registered for a yoga class.”

What to Do Now:

1. Leave a comment below using either the present perfect or past simple with just.
 Watch this video that shows you the difference between the present perfect simple and continuous.
