Present Tense

Aug 27, 2022

Present Perfect Tense: 

The present perfect tense is used to: 

1. Indicate an action completed in the immediate past (more often with just), e.g. : 

  • I have just woken up. 
  • She has just reached safely. 

2. To indicate actions that took place in the past but whose time is not given and is not definite, like: 

  • I have met the President. 
  • Bob has read Robinson Crusoe. 

Now let us look at the structure of a sentence that is written in the present perfect tense. Take the example of: 

I have played football. 

This sentence also has the same structure as sentence 3 in the explore part. That is: 

Subject (S) + has/have +Past Participle form of the verb(V3) + Remaining Part (RP) 


More examples: 

  • I have sent him a message. 
  • She has received  the letter. 
  • They have seen him in the shopping mall.
