Present Perfect Tense

Forming a sentence using present perfect tense

Subject + have/has + verb(past participle) + object


When we want to indicate that an action has finished in the very near past, we use present perfect tense rather than simple past tense.

  • They have just left by bus. (the word ‘just’ indicates that the bus left not long time ago)
  • He has walked two miles already. (he is still working)
  • Aisha and Ali have taken driving lessons recently.
  • Have you had your lunch?

Use ‘has’ for singular nouns and use ‘have’ for plural verbs, and for the words ‘I’, and ‘you’.
