The Present Perfect Tense

  • The present perfect tense tells about an action that happened in the past. 
  • It also tells about an action that began in the past and continues in the present. 
  • Use the helping verb have or has followed by a past participle, which is usually the -ed form of the verb to form the present perfect tense.

    • I have performed in two plays this year.

    The Past Perfect Tense

    • The past perfect tense tells about one past action that occurred before another past action. 
    • Use the helping verb had and a past participle to form the past perfect tense.

    Past Perfect Tense Example
