  4. 4. Questions: We use the auxiliary “have” (“has“ for the 3rd person singular) + the past participle of the verb. And we also change the word order to have/has + subject + past participle e.g. Have they been to China?
  5. 5. USE USE 1 We use the Present Perfect Tense to talk about recent past actions (to give news). Examples I’ve cut my finger! My sister has had a baby! The cat has broken a vase! Tip! We often use just with the Present Perfect Tense to speak about a recent past action.

Examples I have been abroad two times. Anna has never broken a leg. Have you ever eaten sushi? Tip! We often use never and ever with the Present Perfect Tense to talk about experiences.
  12. 12. USE 3 We use the Present Perfect Tense to talk about an action which started in the past and is still true. Examples I have been a teacher for more than ten years. We haven't seen Janine since Friday. How long have you been at this school? Tip! We often use since and for to say how long the action has lasted.
