To describe an experience The present perfect tense connects the past with the present. When using this verb tense, we can be talking about an action or event that occurred in the past but will be referring to how it relates to the present. We use the present perfect when describing certain life experiences. Imagine that you and your friends are at university and you’ve just come back to campus from the summer vacation; you are all very excited to tell your friends about your amazing internships or the beautiful places you went or the wonderful times you had with your family. One member of the bunch says, This summer I hiked Mt. Everest. Not to be outdone, you might say, I have climbed Mt. Everest and several other high peaks. Again, we use the present perfect to describe actions and events which occurred in the past, which are also of particular importance in the present moment. Examples: I have boated on three of the world’s longest rivers. We have never sailed the Atlantic Ocean. Lance Armstrong has won the Tour de France multiple times. Jessie has been to Disneyworld seven times. 2 To describe changes over a period of time We can also use the present perfect to describe events which occurred gradually and over time in the past, especially when these had a lasting influence on the present. As a further example, imagine that you’re low on petrol (gas in American English) and you stop to refuel. You notice that the gallon/litre has become very expensive recently and exclaim, Gas prices have really risen lately! Or, to provide another example, imagine you have an aunt you haven’t seen in some years. When you do see her again after about 10 years and she has become rather fat, you may say, Wow, Auntie, you have gained weight! Keep in mind, however, these are just grammar concept explanations and not a guide for how to maneuver family reunions. Examples: Jeffrey’s Spanish has improved since we spoke last. Erica’s heart has recovered from the illness. Timmy’s grades have worsened since last year. Our house’s value has gone up recently. 3 To describe accomplishments Accomplishments, especially big ones, usually have a lasting influence on the present; we use the present perfect to describe and relate these accomplishments and milestones. Examples: The United States has sent humans to the moon. The national GDP has grown by 3.2 percent! Ireland has won freedom! Grandma has perfected her cornbread recipe. A continuing action that started in the past Actions or events that are still occurring, but which began in the past, also require the use of the present perfect. While this type of situation often involves describing an accomplishment as well, it doesn’t have to, nor does it even have to be positive in nature. Imagine you were stuck on an island all alone without any personal items for a very long time, and one day, exasperated, you said to yourself, I have lived on this deserted island for six years. This would hardly be a positive situation; unless, of course, you enjoy solitude, in which case you probably go back to your cave and play with the pet parrot you’ve adopted. Examples: Jessie has played guitar for ten years. Emma has been a carpenter for a long time. Jim and Hank have worked at the newspaper for almost their entire lives. I have stayed awake for 13 hours.

This lesson is an overview of the present perfect tense What it looks like, how to use it and when to use it! Structure: Subject + have/has + main verb (past participle form) _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ If you don’t feel confident using the present perfect tense in English yet… There are probably a few reasons why! You need to know the past participle form of English verbs... And that can be pretty tricky with irregular verbs! 😳 And you need to understand how to use this tense! Perhaps you feel unsure about when to use the present perfect and when to use the past simple tenses. I will explain all of this inside this lesson. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ When using the present perfect tense, you need an auxiliary verb that helps your main verb to function. In the perfect tenses, the verb (to) have is always the auxiliary verb. In the present perfect tense, the main verb is in the past participle form. This is not difficult for regular past tense verbs. For regular verbs, the past participle form of the verb is the same as the past tense verb, so you just add -ed! But irregular verbs are different and the only way to learn the past participle form is to learn them individually. Past simple or present perfect tense? To answer this question you need to think about time. Finished time and unfinished time. Think about ‘last week’. That’s a good example of finished time. Last week is finished, it’s over. Yesterday, last week, last month, last year, 1991 - these are all examples of finished time… Time that is complete. What about ‘this week’? Is this week finished? No! Not yet. That is an example of unfinished time. There’s still more of this week to come. It’s not finished yet. When you are talking about a time period that has finished, use the past simple. When you are talking about a time period that is unfinished… Like today, this week, this month, this year, use the present perfect. Watch this lesson to learn when to use the present perfect and when to use the past simple tense.

Summary of English Grammar: Present Perfect Tense vs. Past Simple Approximate chronological order: Rules and Explanation: Functions: – Past events – Recent past events – Unfinished states Timeline: Past Events – The present perfect simple tense indicates that something happened in the past. – We don’t know when it happened. We just know it happened in the past some time between the day that you were born until now. Visual Representation of Example: – Example: I’ve been to Australia. – This means some time in the past, you went to Australia. – been vs. gone: Gone means you went there, but you’re still not back yet. Been means you went there, and then you left. – We often use never to emphasize negatives and ever to emphasize questions. – Example: Have you ever been to America? (No, I’ve never been to America.) Recent Past Events: – Example 1: Mum, have you finished cooking dinner? – Example 2: Yes boys, I’ve made your favourite! – We can also use just, yet and already for emphasis. – Example 1: Mum, have you finished cooking dinner yet? – Example 2: Yes boys, I’ve just made your favourite! Unfinished States: – Example: We’ve known each other for two weeks now. – We use for for a period of time. – Examples: for an hour, for two days, for the last 10 years. – We use since for a starting point in time. – Examples: since last night, since three months ago, since the 1980s. Timeline: Unfinished States – We’ve known each other for two weeks now. – The boy met the girl at a certain point in the past, and they still know each other in the present. – They have known each other for two weeks, which means they met two weeks ago. Simple Past: Function – To talk about finished events where the time is known. – Example 1: How was your date honey? – Example 2: We broke up… – In these examples, although the time is not mentioned, both the boy and his mother know the time of the date. – We can use just for emphasis that an event recently happened. – Example: We just broke up. Form: Statements: Subject + have/has (+ never/just/already) + past participle + … (+ for/since, time word, yet) I + ‘ve + been + to Australia. I + ‘ve + never + been + to America.

The present perfect tense might be a hard tense for learners of English and students often have a hard time keeping the present perfect tense apart from the past simple tense. In this English grammar lesson I am going to show you how to form a present perfect tense, and when to use a present perfect tense. But before we get started it's good to know how to conjugate the verb 'to have'. For the singular forms: I have you have he has she has it has. For the plural forms: we have you have they have. It's also good to know that in the English language there are regular and irregular verbs. And it is advisable that you study the most commonly used irregular verbs. Now let's get started. Take a look at these sentences: I have painted the door yellow. They have paid for dinner themselves. Both these sentences are in the present perfect tense. How to form a present perfect tense. Let's have a look at the regular verbs. For the regular verbs we use the auxiliary verb 'to have' and the past participle. You can make the past participle by adding 'ed' to the infinitive form of the verb. Now let's have a look at the singular forms. I have worked there. You have listened carefully. He has cleared the table. She has placed it on the floor. It has snowed. For the plural forms: We have walked to school. You have watched the tennis match. They have marked the tests. Now we need to pay extra attention to verbs that end in an 'e'. Such as live, close and wipe. For these verbs we use the auxiliary verb to have and the past participle. But the past participle is made by simply adding a '-d' to the verb. Look at the examples: I have lived here for quite some time now. He has closed the window. They have wiped the floor. We also need to pay attention to verbs that end in a 'y', especially those preceded by consonant such as spy and study because we change the '-y' into an 'i'. For example: He has spied on his neighbours. We have studied hard. Now let's have a look at the irregular verbs. For the irregular verbs we also use the auxiliary verb to have and the past participle. But for the irregular verbs the past participle has a unique present perfect form. Take a look at the examples: I have built that shed with my own two hands. (The infinitive form of the verb is to build.) She has bought some flowers at the market.(The infinitive form of the verb is 'to buy'.) We have run the marathon. (The infinitive form of the verb is to run.) Now let's have a look at the present perfect tense in questions. First for the regular verbs. Again we use the auxiliary verb 'to have' and the past participle. Has she talked to him yet? Have you kicked the ball? Have they ever worked on a farm? For the irregular verbs we also use the auxiliary verb 'to have' and the past participle, but now the unique present perfect tense form. For example Has she quit her job yet? Have you ever driven a car? Have they ever paid for dinner? Let's have a look at the present perfect tense in negations. For the regular verbs the auxiliary verb 'to have' and we add 'not', contracting it into haven't or hasn't and the past participle. I haven't listened to the news. It hasn't rained since Friday They haven't closed the window. For the irregular verbs we also use the verb 'to have', and not contracting it into haven't and hasn't and the past participle. For example: She hasn't quit her job. (The infinitive form is 'to quit'.) You haven't ever driven a car. (The infinitive form is 'to drive'.) They haven't paid for dinner. (The infinitive form of the verb is 'to pay'.) Let's have a look at the present perfect tense in use. We use the present perfect tense for things that happened in the past, but it is not important when they happened. I have been to Scotland. It's not important when I've been there, it's important that I've been to Scotland. They've decided to buy a car. It's not important when they decided it, the decision alone is important. We also use the present perfect tense for things that started in the past, that have continued in the present. For example: Bob and Jack have known each other for ages. (For example they met in the 1970s, and they are still friends.) They have lived there since 2011. (So they moved there in 2011 and they've continued to live there.) We also use the present perfect tense, when the following words are in a sentence: for, yet, never, ever, just, already, since. Here are some examples: I have lived here for three years. We haven't seen that film yet. Have you ever watched a football game? www.englishgrammarspot.com

Do you like my videos? You can support my work by buying me a coffee: https://ko-fi.com/teachercolin The Present Perfect tense is a little tricky because it has several different uses. In this video we are going to look at the how we can use the Present Perfect tense to talk about past experiences. Before we get started I want to remind you that I am here to help you learn English. So if you find this video useful, and I am sure you will, you should subscribe to my channel so you don't miss future videos. Have a look at the description for links to my social media pages. In the first video of this series on the Present perfect tense we looked at the main concept, which is to talk about how the present moment is affected by something in the past. For example “There has been an accident.” We are talking about the past but our focus in on how the event from the past, in this case 'an accident', affects the present. That is why even though we are talking about the past, it is called the Present Perfect. Because we are more interested in how the past is affecting the present. But, have a look at this example. “I have lived in New York”. This is a very common use of the Present Present Perfect tense but how does that main concept apply? We can see that we are talking about the past but what is the connection with now? We went to New York and now we are back. Well in this case, the main concept is a little vague or abstract but it does still apply. You need to think of it like this; Now you have the experience or the memory of going to New York. So when we use the present perfect here we are saying that We went to New York and it changed us. So now we have some knowledge or experience that we did not have before. Lets quickly compare that to the Past Simple tense. We could say a very similar thing in Past Simple “I lived in New York.” So what is the difference? Is there any difference? Well they are very similar and a lot of people will use them interchangeable, especially in American English, but there is a difference that you should be aware of. In Present Perfect we are talking about now. That’s our focus, the experience that we have now. We are referring to something that happened in that past but it is not our focus and it doesn't matter when because we are talking about the present. In the Past simple we are talking about the past. We are referring to an event from a specific time in the past that has finished and there is no connection to the present. In the context it needs to be clear when that event happened. The example on it’s own is actually lacking that detail. We don't need to say it if it is clear from the context of the conversation but on it’s own it would be better to say something like: “I lived in New York two years ago.” But with present Perfect we don't need to know when, because we are talking about now. Here are some more examples of the Present Perfect tense being used in this way. I have studied medicine. Have you worked for a large company? I haven’t thought about that. We’ve eaten in that restaurant before. She hasn’t been to Paris. You have seen this video. The present perfect is one of the most difficult tenses to learn mainly because it has different uses. The main idea of the tense is that we are talking about how the present is affected by the past but as we have seen in this video, sometimes this effect is only that we have a memory or experience of the event. But remembering the main concept and how we can be flexible with it will help you to express yourself correctly and be understood. We have made some more videos to examine the other ways the present perfect is used in more detail. The first video in the series was an Introduction to the main concept of the tense. We are going to look at how the present perfect is used to talk about information that is new for the listener like news. How we can talk about things that have happened within a period of time up until now. We often use the adverbs Just, Already and Yet with the present perfect as well as the adverbs ever and never. Present perfect if often confused with the past simple so we will look at that in more detail and do a comparison. We will also look at how the present perfect is used differently in American English. Thanks for watching and I hope you have found this useful.

Get your fluency book here: https://www.tofluency.com/book (it's FREE to download!) This English lesson explains the difference between the past simple and the present perfect. This is a difficult area for a lot of learners. My job is to help you understand this difference. You're going to get clear explanations and lots of examples. THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THESE TENSES The past simple is used for actions that finished in the past and have no connection to the present. The present perfect is used for actions that haven't finished. The example I gave is this: - My grandma never went to Madrid - Paul has never been to Madrid My grandma died a long time ago. Therefore, the action of her (possibly) going to Madrid is over. Paul is still alive. The action of him going or not going to Madrid continues. We use the simple past with past time expressions. This includes: - I went there YESTERDAY - She told me TWO HOURS AGO - They went to London IN 2002 Present time expressions are more difficult. What tense you use depends on what you're talking about. For example: - I've had a great day (in general) - I had a great day today (talking about work that has now finished) The present perfect is stricter in British English. For example: - Did you have breakfast yet? (you'll hear this in American English) - Have you had breakfast yet? (only in British English) USING THE PRESENT PERFECT WITH JUST - I just saw her (American English) - I've just seen her (British English) OTHER ENGLISH LESSONS RELATED ON THIS TOPIC: - Present perfect simple vs continuous: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_oODlA-r7HU For vs Since: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vTddHN6ipmc Been to vs been in: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VIl5hOQ5i-A Present perfect with just: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mpPVImrOmxA Present perfect in the negative: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-3nx11zwhGU Also, watch this video to learn more differences between British and American English: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_rtbvqb-_1E ENGLISH FLUENCY PROGRAM: My program gives you the method that will dramatically improve your speaking, grammar, and pronunciation and the materials you need to follow this method.

My name is Emma, and we have a very special video for you today. Okay? In today's video you're going to learn a little bit of grammar about the present perfect, and then you are going to play a really fun game. Not only are you going to get to play a fun game, you're also going to get to meet my sister. Yes, Emma has a sister, so you'll get to see my sister a little bit later because she is going to play the game with us as well. So, let's get started and let me teach you this grammar point, so then we can get to the fun stuff. Okay? So, today we're going to talk about the present perfect. The present perfect is a bit of grammar. Okay? It's a type of tense that many students get very frustrated with. They don't know: "Do I use the present perfect? Do I use the past tense?" It can be really difficult. So, when do we use the present perfect, and what is the present perfect? Well, let me first give you an example of a present perfect sentence, because maybe you've seen something like this before. "Have you ever been to France?", "Have you ever lived in a different city?", "Has your sister ever been on TV?" These are three examples of the present perfect. So, when do we use the present perfect? Well, there's different times we use the present perfect in English. In today's lesson, we're going to focus on using the present perfect to talk about a past experience. So, this is something interesting. An experience is usually an interesting experience; although it doesn't have to be. So, it's an experience that has happened in the past. So, it's not happening now, it's not happening in the future; it's already happened. It happened before, in the past. That's why a lot of students have a hard time with the present perfect because they see the word "present", and they get confused. "But how can we be talking about the past?" Well, the present perfect can be used to talk about a past experience, and we use it to talk about a past experience when we're just talking about something that happened, but we're not talking about when it happened. We're not talking about a specific time; we're not talking about a date. We're talking generally about an experience that happened in the past. So, I wanted to focus on present perfect questions to ask people about their experiences, because a lot of conversations start this way or have this in them. So, when we ask a person a question about the past experience, we can ask them: "Have you ever...?" This indicates we want to know something about somebody's past. "Have you ever been to France?" for example. So I'm asking you: "In the past, have you been to France?" So, to create the present perfect, let's talk about form now. We have: "Have you ever" and then we add something called a past participle to make it the present perfect. So, what's a past participle? Well, a "past participle" is a form of the verb. So, for example, in this case we have the verb "be", "to be". The past participle form of the verb "to be" is "been". Okay? In this case, we have: "Have you ever" and we have our past participle. What's a past participle again? It's a verb in a specific form. Okay? So it's a specific form of a verb. In this case, "lived" is the past participle of "live" or "to live". And our last example. Oh, we have "been" again, which I've already discussed. So, we use past participles in the present perfect. Now, this is where it gets a little bit challenging. There are two different types of past participles; we have our regular past participles and our irregular past participles. So, what's a "regular past participle"? Well, this is a verb where we just add "ed". Okay? So, for example: "play" becomes "played", and I add "ed", and that makes it a past participle. Another example is just down here: "lived". "Live", we add "ed" and it becomes "lived", and that's an example of a regular past participle. Okay? So, have you ever...? […]

In this lesson Rama Explains how we form and use the Present Perfect tense, Godzilla attacks and snakes are eaten. Grammar Gurus helps you learn English grammar with high quality entertaining English videos. English lessons can be fun! First we look at how we form the Present Perfect tense. We form the Present Perfect tense by using have/has +the past participle ( sometimes called verb 3) There is no easy trick to remembering all the forms of the past participle. You just have to try to remember all the forms and using them in conversation will help you remember. The verb have/has is the helper verb and the present participle is the main verb. The helper verb have/has is used to help make the Present Perfect but does not really have any meaning on its own in the Present Perfect. Have/has in the Present Perfect is very different from have/has in the Present Simple. In the Present Simple have/has has meaning. In the sentence ‘I have a dog named Rex.’,’ have’ is the main verb and has a lot of meaning. It shows that the dog is yours. But in the Present Perfect sentence ‘I have eaten snake.”, ‘have’ doesn’t really have much meaning, ‘eaten’ has the meaning ‘has’ just helps make the sentence the Present Perfect. To form questions with the Present Perfect we take the helper verb have/has and move it to the front of the sentence. So ‘You have packed your bag.’ Becomes ‘Have you packed your bag?’ To make the Present Perfect negative just put a ‘not’ behind the helper verb ‘have’. So our example sentence becomes “You have not (or haven’t) packed your bag.” Next, is the big one. How and why we use the present perfect tense. We use the Present Perfect tense when we want to say how long the present moment is and then talk about something that happened in that present moment. When we use the Present Perfect we talk about a moment of time that must include NOW and call that whole amount of time, that whole ‘chunk’ of time, the present moment. Sometimes we specify the time like ‘this week’ or ‘this year’ (see how both those ‘chunks’ of time include now) but sometimes it is just implied like in the sentence “My wife has made pancakes.” The amount of time is ‘this morning’ in the sentence. Or, “Have you ever been to Rome?” the amount of time is your whole life. The amount of time cannot include the past. You cannot talk about any point in time or any moment or ‘chunk’ of time that does not include now. If you talk about the past you must use the Past Simple. For example you can say “I have seen the new Star Wars movie.” In this case the present moment is the time from when the movie first opened in the Theatre up until the present moment. But you cannot say “I have seen the new Star Wars movie last week.” In this sentence you point to the past and give an amount of time that does not include NOW so you must use the past simple, you should say “ I saw the new Star Wars movie last week. This explanation of how and why we use the Present Perfect is very helpful to explain a tricky tense that is the Present Perfect. ‘Already’ and’ yet’ are often used with the Present Perfect. ‘Already’ emphasizes that something has been completed and ‘yet’ says that we expect that an action will be completed. ‘For’ and ‘since’ are often used with the Present Perfect. ‘For’ is used just before an amount of time, the amount of time to be used in the Present Perfect. ‘Since’ is used just before a moment in time that is the start of the moment that is used in the Present Perfect.

We are glad that people are watching it, but we do apologize for a couple of mistakes in the video. "nie wiem" means "I don't know" in Polish. Originally this video was designed for Polish learners but we quickly realized that it could be useful all around the world. In the future we would like to add some translations to various parts of videos to help beginner learners. "British" should be capitalized and it is not at all annoying. Personally I find questions that are posed in the positive form rather than the negative form as slightly more pleasant to the ear. Don't you think? ;) "wtf" is inappropriate for the children and should just be reduced to "what". However, the controversy of text type language and emoticons is certainly a good topic for discussion of English in 2012.

Here is an English grammar lesson about the form of the present perfect tense. In this lesson, you will learn the affirmative form (positive), question form and negative form of the present perfect tense. I also explain the contracted forms for the affirmative and negative. The present perfect is formed by a combination of the auxiliary verb "have" in the present followed by the past participle of the main verb. Example: "I have cleaned." The past participle of regular verbs is formed by adding "ed" to the base form. I also give you the spelling rules of forming the past participle of other regular verbs. The past participle of irregular verbs have no rules at all and you must simply learn them by heart when you learn a new verb. Some examples are be - been, find - found, do - done, go - gone. The position of adverbs whne using the present perfect is very important. Generally we place the adverb between the auxiliary verb "have" and the past participle of the main verb. Example "He has JUST left the office." At the end of this English grammar lesson, there are some exercises to test your understanding. If you have any questions, please ask me in the comments section below the video lesson and I will answer. The accent in the video is a British English accent.

We use the simple past to talk about events that happened at a definite time in the past: When did you do the other concert? I sang at the anniversary celebrations.

This video is about the difference between Present Perfect Simple and the Past Simple. Both tenses are often confused even by native English speakers. The Present Perfect Simple is both a past and a present tense and it describes an unfinished action without indicating a precise time. The Past Simple or Simple Past instead, describes a finished action placed at a specific time in the past. It might be tricky when there are certain adverbs of frequency to decide which tense to use. Watch the video and find out which ones to use. The lesson is mainly designated for elementary students who wish to study or review English grammar and vocabulary. However, it would also help students who are at an advanced level who wish to brush up on English grammar.

Transcript: Hi and welcome back. In this lesson, I will show you how to avoid the most common mistake that people make with the past simple and present perfect tenses, and how to use the two tenses correctly. We will do an exercise to really understand the concept, and there is a quiz to test your understanding. So let’s start. Have a look at these five sentences. Some of the sentences are wrong. Stop the video, try to make the corrections, then play the video again and check. Alright, actually, I tricked you a little bit with that. All of these sentences are wrong. That’s because, they all talk about a single, finished action in the past. You can see this on the timeline. The action can be at any time in the past – it can be 1998 or it can be last week or even yesterday. But if you mention the time for a finished action, then you MUST use the past simple – not the present perfect. Notice that in all of these sentences, there is a strong focus on the time when the action happened. So when do you use the present perfect? You can use it if the action happened recently, and you want to focus on the action and not the time. In our five sentences, the first three are not recent, they happened further back in the past. But if I bought a house just two weeks ago, or last week, I can say “I have bought a house.” That means I have bought the house recently. So if I say to you, “Hey guess what! I have bought a house!” then I am giving you good news. I’m focusing on buying the house. I’m not talking about the time because it’s not important. If you want to know the time, you can ask “When did you buy it?” Then I can say “I bought it two weeks ago” or “I bought it last week.” Notice, again, to mention the time, we use the past simple. Alright, I’m now going to give you a test to see if you can use these two tenses correctly. Just remember: if the past time is important, then use the past simple. If the time is not important, use the present perfect. You see three dialogues on the screen. In each sentence, I want you to choose the correct form of the verb. Stop the video, think about your answers, then play the video again and check. Alright, let’s discuss the answers. Number one is “Hey Sabina, your package has arrived. Here, Ruth is giving news, so there’s no need to mention the time. For this reason, we use the present perfect tense. In number two, “When did it arrive?” We want to use the past simple here because this question asks about the specific time that the action happened. Number three is “It arrived this morning.” because here Ruth says exactly when it happened – this morning, so the past simple is correct. Number four – “Hi Paul. Great news. I have passed my exams.” In number five, “Congrats! When did the results come out?” Number six is “They came out last night”. Number seven is “Have you ever been to Argentina?” Here, we don’t mention a time because the question asks about life experience. The time is not important. So it’s like asking: “In your life, have you ever visited Argentina?” ‘Been’ means ‘visited’ here. Number eight is “No, I haven’t. Have you?” And number nine – “Yes, I went there on vacation in 2010.” Here, we want the past simple because the time is mentioned – 2010. How many answers did you get right?
