Dear readers, a member asked how to say “Derramei café na minha camisa,” in English. If you just now spilled coffee on your shirt, then you would say I spilled coffee on my shirt(because it is happening at one point in time, not over an extended period of time).
“HAVE SPILLED” IS CORRECT IN SENTENCES THAT DO NOT IMPLY A SPECIFIC TIME.
I have spilled coffee on my shirt many times.
I have spilled coffee on my shirt before.
I hope you like it!
