Overview of All English Tenses - Present Tenses - Present Perfect - Overview


Now we'll have a look at the present perfect tense. The form for the present perfect tense is again our subject here, our auxiliary verb, or helping verb, in this case it's 'have'. For subjects 'I,' 'you,' 'we,' 'they', we leave the auxiliary verb as 'have'. For 'he,' 'she' and 'it', our auxiliary verb needs to be conjugated or changed into 'has'. Following these helping verbs, we have our main verb in the past participle form. Here we have the verb 'to play'. 'To play' is a regular verb. So for regular verbs we simply add '-ed'. The result is sentences such as 'I have played football today,' or 'He has played snooker today'.

This unit covers a detailed plan of ESA on vocabulary, grammar and language functions, and I learned one of the useful techniques that revamps teaching experience such as scenario setting, and this can attract students' attention as well as their interest of learning. The example is very viable for teachers to implement in class on daily basis.As it has been mentioned in the introduction sometimes while the language the grammar comes naturally. Reading this module has been very helpful in refreshing the knowledge about grammar. It has further inspired me to identify these in my daily use as well e.g while reading a sentence in a book I try to identify the different parts of a speech.
