Here is an example. You can use this pattern with other verbs:
vidi = I have seen
vidisti = you (s) have seen
vidit = he, she, it has seen
vidimus = we have seen
vidistis = you (pl) have seen
viderunt = they have seen
The present perfect is used for an action that started in the past and continues into the present. (Different from the simple past which is an action that was completed in the past.)
