PRESENT PERFECT. So…let’s talk about the FORM of the PRESENT PERFECT TENSE first…OK?. The Present Perfect Tense is formed by 2 things: the auxiliary verb HAVE and HAS ( in all form: Affirmative, Negative and Interrogative ) the PAST PARTICIPLE. For Example….
- regular form
- present perfect form
- present perfect tense
So…let’s talk about the FORM of the PRESENT PERFECT TENSE first…OK? • The Present Perfect Tense is formed by 2 things: • the auxiliary verb HAVE and HAS • (in all form: Affirmative, Negative and Interrogative) • the PAST PARTICIPLE For Example… She has worked in that office for six years. auxiliary past participle
Here are some more examples! I have already eaten breakfast. She hasseen that movie before. We have dealt with customers for many years. In these examples the past participle has an irregular form. Just like the lists you’ve been studying She has useda cash register before. He has workedfor that company since May. We have already served their food. In these examples the past participle has a regular form and looks just the the simple past tense, but it’s not.
We often use CONTRACTIONS with this tense. I have I’ve I haven´t You have You’ve you haven´t We have We’ve We haven´t They have They’ve They haven´t He has He’s He hasn´t She has She’s She hasn´t It has It’s It hasn´t I have lived in Florida for two years. I’ve lived in Florida for two years
So now that we’ve talked about the form (words) of the PRESENT PERFECT, we can now look at the reasons (function) we use it and see in what situations we need it. There are 2 main reasons we use the PRESENT PERFECT TENSE. They are completely different and have no connection to one another. Do you want to guess?
Are you Ready? Reason #1 We use the PRESENT PERFECT TENSE to talk about a completed past actionat anunspecified time in the past. Perhaps we don’t remember when the action happened. Maybe we don’t know when the action happened. Or we just don’t care when the action happened. The only thing that is important is that it happened sometime before now. But not any specific time. I’ve already eaten breakfast. She’s seen that movie before. When did it happen?
When we want to ask a question about something that happened at any time before now, we say: Have you ever….? Have you ever worked at a job you really loved? Has she ever worked at a job she really hated? Have they ever used a cash register? Have you ever supervised other employees? The short answer is… Yes, I have. No, I haven’t Yes, she has. No, she hasn’t.
Ever or never?
Already or yet?
If we want to ask a question about something that happened at a specific time in the past, we wouldn’t use the present perfect tense. We need to use a different tense. Can you guess which one? You’re right! The simple past tense. Whendid they use a cash register? They used a cash register last year. Whendid you supervise other people? I supervised other people two years ago. Last year, yesterday, two years ago, last week are all words we use with the simple past tense
We often use the Present Perfect with already to talk about things that have happened before now. I’ve already eaten breakfast. She’s already read that book. You’re too late. He’s already left for school. We usually use yetin questions to find out if something has happened before now. Have you bought your mother a present yet? Has she seen that movie yet? Have they left for school yet?
Often when we’re speaking, we go back and forth between these two tenses—the present perfect and the simple past tense. Take a look at this example. Miko: Have you ever supervised other people? Tanaya: Yes, I have. Miko Tanaya Miko: When did you do that? Tanaya: I supervised others last year in my previous job.
Reason #2 With the words “for” and “since” to talk about something that began in the past and continues to now. For example: I’ve studied at this school since last June. She’s lived in West Palm Beach for 2 months. 1. SINCE + POINT IN TIME Use the present perfect with “since” + point in time (since 5:00, since Monday, since 1994) to show when something started. I’ve worked at this job since last year. He’s lived in Florida since March. They’ve been married since 1985. 2. SINCEcan also introduce a time clause. I’ve lived in Lake Worth since I moved to Florida.
FOR + LENGTH OF TIME Use the Present perfect with “for” + length of time (for ten minutes, for two weeks, for years, for a long time) to show how long a present condition has lasted. I’ve worked at this job for one year. He’s lived in Florida for 9 months. They’ve been married for a long time. So…… How do we ask questions using this tense? When we want to know the length of time something has taken place we use the question words “HOW LONG?” How long has she studied English at the AEC?
