    第一,請搞清楚,有用already/yet/ever等字,不等於句子必須係 present perfect tense。

    第二,有答題者話因為有 already ,所以就要用 present perfect,然後用 already 強調事情已完成。情況好似屋企有包發粉,所以要買個焗爐,咁就可以用到包發粉整蛋糕一樣。既然只係強調,咁其實冇左都唔影響意思架喎。

    所以兩句中,I took a shower 其實已經可以。I had took a shower 就一定錯,因為有 had 就必然係 past perfect tense,句式係 had + past participle,o係呢句o既情況就會用 taken。

    Absolutely, it very much depends on situation....

    sometimes, "I took a shower already" is correct, especially spoken english

    only need to use "simple past tense" to express the action had been done.

    I took shower already OR I had a shower already

    If you do this action everyday, you could say that "I take shower every day.

    我每天都淋浴"。

    I had took a shower already is correct.

    'I took a shower already' is wrong because as you said 'already', you have to use present or past perfect tense to emphaize the completion of the task.
