The Present Perfect Tense


Bob and Mary have beenon holiday for a week. They've visiteda lot of tropical beaches and they've swumin the blue sea. Have they boughtany souvenirs yet? No, they haven't.



&We form the Present Perfect tense with the auxiliary verb have/has and the past participle. We form the past participle of regular verbs by adding -ed to the verb.

e.g. play - played

We form the past participle of irregular verbs differently.

e.g. see - seen

We form questions by putting have/ has before the subject.

e.g. Have they read the book?

We form negations by putting not between have/has and the past participle.

e.g. He has not/hasn't repaired the TV yet.


S + have has V3/ed
