4 Preview and warm-up This lesson is about using the present perfect to talk about life experiences. What do you already know about using the present perfect tense? Share with your teacher! 4
5 Introducing the present perfect We use the present perfect tense to talk about things that are relevant to right now. The present perfect is used when we are thinking about the past and the present together. One way that the present perfect tense can be used is when talking about experiences up to the present moment. My cousin has learnt German. She has learnt German and she can still speak it now. 5
6 How to form the present perfect tense We form the basic present perfect tense using the subject + have/has + the past participle of the verb. subject + have + past participle I have watched that film twice. She has been to the USA before. Lisa has broken her arm. Jordan has studied psychology. My grandparents have borrowed my car. 6
7 Past participles for regular and irregular verbs To form the present perfect you need to use the past participle of the main verb. For regular verbs forming the past participle is easy, we just add -ed at the end. However, some verbs are irregular. For these special verbs you must learn different past participles. Common regular verbs work = worked watch = watched play = played dance = danced finish = finished common irregular verbs see = seen have = had go = gone be = been hear = heard 7
8 Irregular and regular verbs Look at the verbs on the cards below. Which are regular and which are irregular verbs? Can you remember the past participle for each? send 8
9 Recognising the present perfect Read the following dialogue. Can you recognise which sentences use the present perfect tense? I m going on holiday to Spain next week. I ve never been to Spain before, I m really excited! Oh how wonderful, I ve been to Spain many times, it s a beautiful country! You are going to love it! The only problem is that I m vegetarian. I ve heard it can be quite difficult to find vegetarian food in Spain. I m vegetarian too, I ve been vegetarian for over ten years. When we were in Barcelona last summer it was quite easy to find vegetarian food. I think it might be harder in some of the smaller towns. 9
10 Making sentences in the present perfect Can you make sentences in the present perfect about the photos below? Use the verbs and information on the cards to help you! 10
11 Present perfect or simple past? Sometimes it can be difficult to know when to use the simple past and when to use the present perfect. It helps to remember that actions or states using the simple past are finished, they cannot change. Actions or states using the present perfect might refer to the past but they also relate to the present moment. I went to the new Indian restaurant in the shopping centre for the first time last month. It was fantastic; great food and friendly service. I ve been twice this month, once with my family and once with colleagues. In the above example last month is finished and in the past, so we use the simple past. This month is on-going and relates to the present moment so we use the present perfect. 11
12 Using the verb go with the present perfect We use the past participles been and gone with the present perfect tense. Been is the past participle for the verb be while gone is the past participle of the verb go. Normally we use been for completed actions and we use gone when someone has gone to a place and hasn t yet returned. She s gone on holiday to Egypt. She spoke to Nathan before she left, he s been to Egypt many times so he gave her some tips. 12
13 Using never and ever with the present perfect We often use never and ever with the present perfect. We use ever to ask questions in the present perfect and to find out about life experiences at any time in someone s life. We use never in our answers when they are negative. Both ever and never come before the main verb in a sentence in the present perfect. Question Have you ever been to Scotland? Have they ever worked together before? Answer I ve never been to Scotland but I hear it s very beautiful. Yes, they ve worked together many times. Has she ever lived in a foreign country? Yes, she s lived in France and in Italy. Have you ever played golf? No, I ve never played golf but it looks fun! 13
14 Match the questions and answers Match the questions on the left with the appropriate answer on the right. Remember when to use the simple past and when to use the present perfect! 1. When was the last time you saw your brother? a. No, I ve never tried sushi. 2. Have you ever been to Asia? b. Yes, I ed my application yesterday. 3. Did you apply for the job in the marketing department? c. I visited him and his wife last Sunday for dinner. 4. Have you ever tried sushi? d. Yes, twice. I ve been to China and to South Korea. 14
15 Question practise You are taking lunch with a new colleague and getting to know them. Can you ask them one question in the simple past and one in the present perfect for each of the photos below? 15
16 Can you put this conversation in order? A Have you ever played football, Phillip? There s a staff football team too. I ll introduce you to Susan at lunch, she s in charge of staff sports. If you re interested in joining a staff team, she can tell you all about it. B Hi John, I don t think we ve had a chance to meet properly yet. I m Phillip. It s nice to meet you! Have you been to the staff cafeteria yet? It s really nice! Would you like to join the team there for lunch today? C Hi Phillip, nice to meet you too. No, I haven t been to the cafeteria yet, I d love to join the team there for lunch. I ve never worked in an office with a cafeteria before, that s really useful! D Oh that d be great! I played rugby when I was a child but I haven t played football before. I d be happy to learn! 16
17 Making conversation with new colleagues Look back at the text you read. Which sentences used the present perfect tense? 17
18 Imagine you are Imagine you are meeting a new colleague for the first time. What questions will you ask them? Remember to be friendly but don t ask anything too personal! 18
19 Using before with the present perfect We use the present perfect to talk about a past event which is important in the present. We use the word before with the present perfect to emphasise that something has or has not happened in the past. We use before in questions and responses. Examples They have never met before. She has never been to Australia before. Have you been to Vietnam before? We have never had any problems before. I have been there before, I know the way. 19
20 Using so far with the present perfect We use the present perfect with so far to stress that we are talking about experiences in the past up to the present moment. We use so far in questions and responses. How have you enjoyed your trip so far? I ve really loved what I ve seen of the city so far! 20
21 Asking questions with the present perfect We can also ask questions with the present perfect using the phrase: how many times + present perfect. How many times have you completed a marathon? 21
22 Fill in the gaps Full the gaps using: before, so far, and how many times 1. have you been to England. Have you been? 2. No, I ve never been to England. I ve been to three countries in Europe: Sweden, Norway and France. 3. Oh, I d love to visit Norway but I hear it s expensive there. I haven t made it. I need to save some money first. I ve been to Sweden though, it was beautiful. have you been there? 4. I ve been to Sweden twice, but I preferred my visit in spring to my winter trip. It s beautiful but very cold in winter! 22
23 Asking questions using the present perfect Make questions using the present perfect for each card below. Then choose three of the questions and answer them yourself using the present perfect! check if a friend has been to the new French restaurant in town find out if two friends have met before find out how many times your sister has been swimming this week ask if your colleague has been to the USA before ask your brother if he has been to the dentist this year find out what a friend has done so far with her holiday find out how many times your neighbour has been to Italy ask your dad if your mum has gone out find out what work your colleague has done on the project so far 23
