Question

Since I came here/Since I've been here

Alice Val Alice Val (2) on 20/07/14

I was taught that we cannot use the Present Perfect Tense after "since" :). So, it's not correct to say "since you've been gone" or "since I've been here". It's better to say: "Since I came here.." But people say like that. It means that it's correct? Or is it more common for casual speech?

There are two meanings here for since: the conjunction of time and the conjunction of cause (like because).

There is nothing wrong with your examples in my opinion.

I see no objection to them and do not consider them as only used in casual speech.

The way I would handle that would be to make a straightforward Session stub. Fake your session, I would wrap the session usefulness in some Essay help class, and I would make a Class Stub of that session where it utilizes the same strategies, className and so forth ... In any case, doesn't utilize the PHP session syntx, utilizes something like, $session = genuine;

I've never heard that Since is used with Past Simple (like "Since I came here"), contrarwise I was taught Sinse is used with Perfect Tenses (perfect and perfect continuous).. this question needs to be clarified..

I'm don't know, but I heard a similar rule in school before, but I'm sure there's nothing wrong on your examples.

Maybe the rule applies, if there is the Present Perfect on both parts of the sentence, as in before the "since" and after the "since"?

Thank you, Astrid! >Maybe the rule applies, if there is the Present Perfect on both >parts of the sentence, as in before the "since" and after the >"since"? I'm not sure, because we usually use the Present Perfect in the part of the sentence without "since". For example: "Since I came here, I've been happy". Now, as I understand, it's also possible to say, "Since I've been here, I've been happy". But, in spite of that, thank you for your thoughts and reply! I'm glad to "see" you here :).
