Good morning, I've been struggling with this doubt a long ago. On my usually spoken languages, we use a similar form of "have" when we speak, I think it's better use an example (it's spanish):
Yo he intentado hacer eso
There's when my problem appears, this means that "I have tried to do something" but I don't know how express it.
What would be correct?
I've tried to do this.
I tried to do this.
The thing is that as in my languages we use the verb "haber" (similar meaning as "have") for almost every sentence so when I write o speak in English I also put the "have" in everything, so I say/write:
I've tried, I've said, I've did
Then, I don't know if it's accepted or not, if it's grammatically incorrect or if it's just better to use "I tried", "I said" and "I did".
What is the correct way for all this? I feel really confused. Really thank you!
