✨Present Perfect Tense✨
The present perfect tense is a verb tense that shows an action or event has taken place before. The basic structure use has/have + past participle.
・I have been to France.
・He has eaten to sushi.
・She has bought a car.
・They have been to London.
To make a question we change the subject and has/have:
・Have you been to France?
・Has he eaten sushi?
・Has she bought a car?
・Have they been to London?
To make a negative we add not before the verb:
・I have not been to France.
・He has not eaten sushi.
・She has not bought a car.
・They have not been to London.
The key to using the present perfect is the verb and knowing the past participle. Let’s try some exercises; try changing these sentences to the present perfect:
・I miss the bus = I have missed the bus.
・I visited France.
・She ate sushi.
・They did not buy a car.
・He did not go to London.
Now lets fill in the blanks:
・I have told him to be quiet. (tell)
・I _____________ that movie. (see)
