What is the present perfect? We use the present perfect to describe an action that happened just before now. You cannot use the present perfect to say things like: yesterday, one year ago, when I lived in japan, that day, one day, etc.
How do we make the present perfect? To make the present perfect you have to add a auxility verb and a verb in past principle, together with a subject. For example: -You have seen that movie many times. -I think i have met him once before. -People have traveled to the moon. -Have you read the book yet?
For an easy way to remember how to make the present perfect is to remember this table: SUBJECT+ AUXILITY VERB+ VERB IN PAST PARTICIPLE.
