no has nacido en Italia

In English doesn't this translate to -you have not been born in Italy-? Which sounds odd in English.

This question relates to:
Spanish lesson "Conjugate regular -er, -ir verbs in El Pretérito Perfecto Compuesto (present perfect)"

¡Hola Meghan! Please note that in Spanish we can use El Pretérito Perfecto Compuesto when we talk about a past event, therefore the translation for "you were not born in Italy" can be either "tú no has nacido en Italia" or "tú no naciste en Italia". You can find more information in our system about the use of the different past tenses.
