Is the following a correct way to approach this?
Depending on the context, I really struggled to see the distinction between which tense was appropriate to use with "depuis" and the negative.
(I'm sure my Kwiziq results reflect that!)
I've seen it described that The Present Tense is used when an action was taken in the past and is still the case now, and that Le Passé Composé is used to describe for how long something has not been going on.
That is to describe an action that was not taken in the past, and has still not been taken yet.
Is this an accurate way to decide which Tense is appropriate to use in negative sentences with depuis?
This question relates to:French lesson "Using Le Passé Composé or Le Présent in negative sentences with ''depuis''"
