I am us­ing Ken Tay­lor’s English on the Move ar­ti­cle about long-dis­tance travel (Busi­ness Spot­light 4/2018) as a topic of dis­cus­sion with our cor­po­rate clients. Not only is it a use­ful topic, there are also some hints for time man­age­ment and or­ga­niz­ing one’s agenda. But I won­der why Ken Tay­lor used the present per­fect tense in this sen­tence: “This is the first time I have been on a long-dis­tance trip...” Why didn’t he use the fu­ture or fu­ture per­fect? Thank you for clear­ing this up for me and for writ­ing great and use­ful ar­ti­cles! Bára Pru­chová, Bratislava
