I’ve lost my pen. It probably my wife hid from me 😀

You’re wife must like your pen! 🙂

Hi David! I’ve been misplacing my things everytime too. For exemple, today when I arrived at work, I realized that I’ve misplaced my watch in somewhere at home.

Have you looked under your bed? 🙂

I’ve lost my TV Remote Control… LOL!

You’ll just have to get up and change the channels yourself! 🙂

I’ve lost my book on the bus.

1- Neste caso real, esqueci o meu livro no “guarda-objetos” do banco do ônibus e nunca mais encontrei. É o caso de “lose” e não “misplace”, correto?
2- Americanos usam expressões como perder a cabeça, perder a paciência, perder a calma? Se usam, estas frases ficariam no pretérito ou present perfect? E perder a vida? Poderia dizer “He has lost his life”?


Olá, Adriano! Sim, lost seria a melhor opção.

Sim, existem todos estes “perder”s em inglês. 🙂 (lose one’s head, lose one’s cool, etc.) E, sim, você pode usar o “lose one’s life” com o Present Perfect (ou Simple Past, dependendo do contexto, é claro). Veja um exemplo nas notícias: <== link

Obrigado, Tim!

🙂 b

   I’ve lost my dog on the street. I’m very sad. Help me find it.

Thanks, Ceris! David will come in and read the comments soon, too.

David, In lst July I lost my mp3 player, so I had to buy another because I like listen to music everytime. But I’ve lost the new one.

That’s correct, José Luiz. You couldn’t use the present perfect in the first sentence, because it was a specific time in the past.

Hello David. I’ve lost my driver license and the police stopped me. What do I now?!? Please, ask Tim if can he help me? Haushsuahah. 

Tim here to the rescue! 🙂

That’s great. Thanks a lot! I’m already OK. My wife found the license… She was under the seat!


I’ve hurt my knee while playing volleyball.

Hello, Maria! In this sentence, you can’t use the Present Perfect (sorry 🙂 ) because you specified a time – while playing volleyball. So you need to say: I hurt my knee while playing volleyball.

Hi Tim,
I have misplaced my headphones so I am listening to the audio straight of the PC speakers. Thanks!!!

At least you can still hear the lessons! 🙂

Hi Tim, Do you remember that English book that I borrowed from you two weeks ago? I would like just tell you that I’ ve lost that book.         (Huau,Hutu,huau…’s a joke). Actually I am still reading it.

You scared me! (Nah, just kidding, too. 🙂 ) Are you enjoying it?

I´ve lost my result of the eye exam and  I can´t buy a new glasses for me.

That’s too bad. You’ll have to go back to the eye doctor to get a new prescription.

I’ve lost my money, it was in my pocket.

(Can I use present perfect and past in the same phrase? I’m having a hard time to understand it).

In this case, since you are telling a story, you should say: I lost my money; it was in my pocket. (Because you already found it.)
