PAST SIMPLE PRESENT PERFECT Form: we add “ed” to all regular verbs, Form: has/have + past participle Irregular verbs must be learnt by heart. We use the present perfect for an action in the past with a result now or when we talk about a time from the past until now. We use the Past Simple for something in the past which is finished. • I’ve lost my glasses. (I can’t find them now) • I’ve been to Spain, but I haven’t been to Portugal. • He played tennis yesterday. We use: hasn’t/haven’t + past participle for negatives: • The children went to the park this morning. • John hasn’t seen the film. We use “did” to make questions and “didn’t” for negatives. The verb stays in the base form. We use: has/have + subject + past participle for questions: • Did you see Bob yesterday? • Have you seen Jane today?
