  2. 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.)
