Past simple and present perfect

Man benutzt das Present Perfect, um ein Geschehen auszudrücken, das in der Vergangenheit geschah. Der genaue Zeitpunkt ist nicht wichtig. Folglich sind die Signalwörter: ever, never, once, many times, several times, before, so far, already, yet etc.
Das Simple Past dient dazu, eine Handlung auszudrücken, die in der Vergangenheit abgeschlossen (einmalig oder wiederholt) wurde. In diesem Zusammenhang sind die Signalwörter: yesterday, one year ago, last week, at that moment, that day etc. von Bedeutung.

Setzen Sie die Verben in der richtigen Form ein (past simple oder present perfect).


1. She loves Paris. She __________ (be) there many times.
