PRESENT PERFECT

PRESENT PERFECT

We use the present perfect to talk about past experiences when you don’t say exactly when they happened.

I’ve been to London.

My brother has worked a lot.

For regular verbs the past participle is the same as the past simple (+ed). For irregular verbs you have to learn it.

We often use the past participle with  ever or never.

Have you ever been to London?

I’ve never been to London.

Let’s practise it now!

Go to ESPA 4 and answer the following questions as a comment!

Option A: Have you ever been to a big city? When did you go? Where did you stay? What did you do there?

Example: Yes, I have. I’ve been to Paris. I went there five years ago, when I was 25. I stayed at a youth hostel. I visited the Eiffel Tower and ate crepes.

Option B: Have you ever seen an adventure film? When did you see it? Where did you see it? What do you think of it?

Example: Yes, I have. I’ve seen Pirates of the Caribbean. I saw it some years ago. I saw it at home with some friends. I think it was fantastic.
