1.Warm up (W, D)
Teacher writes 4 sentences on the board.
I want to show you five sentences.
1. Emily has read the Harry Potter series 3 times.
2. I have read the Harry Potter series 3 times
3. She has run a marathon once.
4. We have run a marathon once.
Do you see anything similar in all 4 sentences?
Yes, take a look at the pink words. They are all has plus a verb. But the verb is a special form.
Now, all four sentences, what are they trying to show? Can you guess?
Yes, they are trying to show experiences. When you want to show an experience you will use the present perfect.
Have/ has + Ved/3 (Past Participle)
Haven’t/ hasn’t + Ved/3 (Past Participle)
We use present perfect to talk about:
Actions that started in the past and continue up to now
Life experiences (time isn’t stated)
Completed past actions with results we can see now
Time expressions with Present Perfect:
Ever, never, since, for, just, already, yet, before
Students’ books open. Students fill in the gaps in the table and make notes of Present Perfect in copy books.
Each student makes two positive and two negative Present Perfect sentences.
