HOW DO WE MAKE THE PRESENT PERFECT?
I HAVE BEEN YOU PLAYEDHE SHE HAS SEEN IT VISITEDWE THOUGHT YOU HAVE DONE THEY
Have + participle Has
1. WHEN SOMETHING HAS HAPPENED BUT … WHEN? IT IS NOT IMPORTANT ex. I have worked in this field for 4 years I have always worked in a team I have been chosen project manager
2. WHEN SOMETHING HAS HAPPENED recently, lately, so far I have met John recently I have always worked in a team so far I have been chosen project manager lately
3. WHEN SOMETHING HAS HAPPENED already, not...yet, never, always I have already called the manager I haven't read that project report yet I have never liked him I have always known it
4. WHEN SOMETHING HAS HAPPENED today, this morning, this month, this year... (period of time which is not over yet) I have met John today I have done my report this morning I have not studied the project hard this month I have been to England this year
BUT I have met the project manager this morning I met the project manager this morning Can you explain the difference?
GENERALLY SPEAKING THE PRESENT PERFECT IS ALWAYS CONNECTED TO THE PRESENT
AND SO, WE USE IT ALSO TO TALK ABOUT THE DURATION OF AN ACTION
