    I think it was a faily good lesson. Using a time line would’ve helped us to understand and contrast much easier both grammar tenses.

    Well, it is just a suggestion.

Quiz: sentence 1st. We don’t know when it happened. Why is Present Perfect the right answer?

Thanks.

Profile photo of byte byte

    Yes, if you don’t know when it happened, then you have to use the present perfect tense. Try to imagine it as an experience what you still have got. “I have seen the Loch Ness monster.” – That’s a memory in my mind what still exists. I don’t know (or it’s irrelevant) when was the day I saw that entity but though it happened in the past, that event is still valid, still exists as a memory in your mind. So you have to use the PRESENT perfect tense.

An adverbial of time is a clue. We can’t use Present Perfect if the exact past time of action is specified. “We have watched the movie yesterday.” is incorrect, right? It seems to me that “We watched the movie YESTERDAY.” instead is correct.

Profile photo of Konstantin Konstantin

    Yes, you’re fully correct. Yesterday already finished, it’s over so you have to use Simple Past. Everytime we specify the time we did the action we don’t use Present Perfect.

    I think If you're interested in learning it, it's better to care more and more about phonetic of each word that you've heard. And also please check in a dictionary and exercise as much as you can ;)

In many cases we have some words helping us distinguish between past simple and present perfect. For example if we have ‘yesterday’, we use past siple. If we have ‘ever’ or ‘never’ we use present perfect. But sometimes we do not have such words in a sentence. Usually teachers say: if we are talikng about past, which is related to present (now) we use present perfect… I think it can be confusing. Logically everything what happened in the past somehow influences the present. Should we always use present perfect then? I think this issue should be explained in another way. The usage of right tense should depend on what we want to focus on. If we want to emphasise an activity we use past simple. If we want to emphasise a result – we use present perfect. Cleaning house is a good example. “I cleanded my house”. I want to be focused on the activity. Cleaning in this case. “I have cleaned my house”. In this case the effect (clean house) is important.
Feel free to add comments about my opinion.

I have a question about using the present perfect to talk about the consequences like “he has found the helmet” in your example. can’t we just say “he find it” ???? or the simple present can’t be used for results?

About the 9th question I found this. With the verb shine, the form shined is preferred in everyday English, possibly because shone sounds too much like the form shown, which is the past participle of show. However, in Internet searches the form shone occurs quite frequently because of its use in literary English.

    Serbets, the structure of the present perfect tense is subject+has/have+past participle verb. If you look up shine on the web, you will find that is an irregular verb and its past participle form is shone. Hopeful is useful. Greetings from Peru

Tell me would it be a big mistake if instead of perfect a present or past simple is used? Would I be understood? I am a teacher and I hate lessons with perfect because it is so confusing for students to use it. Here in Polish we don’t have it and we use past or simple (and other tenses) so students can’t understand why sentences She’s just eaten or I’ve read a book are in perfet since in Polish they’re just the past.

Hi, thanks for the lesson. I’m taking an exam in two months. It’s called YDS(Foreign Language Exam). I’m all okay with daily tenses but these perfect tenses they are all problem for me. Can you make a Lesson about them? I mean not about how the sentences are, about when we use them or what the differences between them.
Past Perfect Tense
Past Perfect Continuous Tense
Present Perfect Tense
Past Perfect Continuous Tense
Future Perfect Tense
Future Perfect Continuous Tense

or anybody who reads this, can you guys help me about it?

Thanks to everyone sice now.

hello our teacher thank u for your lesson
i have some Comparison
Ok
present perfect :
we use have with(pr)p : you -we-I-they
we use has with(pr)s: sh -he it
ex: I have lost my key
ex: she has finished her homework
past simple :
we use with verb to (be)
1/ were (are in present simple) withe : we-they-you
2/ was ( is in present simple ) with : I -she-he -it
and ::: present prefect : * finished time only and this actin not important for me. example :
i have seen that film . why i said that coz i do not want to see it again .
but in the past simple when i saying : I saw it last week
past simple : past action and past time
this is first information
*** second : present prefect : we use just or recently . = finished action
ex: we have recently sold our house
but : past simple : a long time a go
ex: my parents met in London or i lost my key last week
present prefect : usually a situation is the same as the past > what is mean ?
ex: he has gone out
past simple : the time must be finished : it rained yesterday
**** present prefect : we can talk about time not finished : he has rained today
also : sometime : there is a connection with now
past till now
they have gone home
***** past simple : sometime happened in the past and this action not connection to now
ex: i visited Ukraine when i was a child
thank u teacher a lot ….

I’m confused. you said that Present Perfect is used to describe something happening now.
In the sentence: “This mountain has never been climbed buy anyone. Several mountaineers have tried to reach the top, but nobody has neer succeeded.” Where this sentence is mentioning something occuring now?

Hej teacher.Could you explain please to me why this sentence should be like that? “We last saw him a long time ago”. I think, we should use here “We last have seen him a long time ago”. It is actually an extract for the one grammar book.

Profile photo of kirillstan kirillstan

Thank you Ben, I’ve got 10/10 😁

Profile photo of Mouliza Donna Mouliza Donna

kirillstan, I think correct is 1-st sentence. We use Past Participle for events which happened recently (as wrote Benjamin at the board). But in your example event took place “a long time ago”. So, in my opinion, we use Past Simple!

Thanks for the helpfull lesson, but i have a question to ask you aboult: How do i know if you are talking aboult the past simple or the to be verb when you use the apostrophe in “he’s” for example? I mean, if it is “he is” or “he has”?

Profile photo of Felipe Felipe

In the video – 3:21 – Benjamin said for present perfect, that the action (finish homework) was 5 Min. ago.

But if something was 5 Minit ago, it is PAST SIMPLE not PRESENT PERFECT.
I think, Benjamin is wrong.

Benjamin, I got 90 but I don’t understand why.
In the first question I was asked to mark the
sentence in the PRESENT PERFECT TENSE,so I did it.
But the correct one was the sentence in the Past
Tense. How come?

Profile photo of Sonia1234 Sonia1234

Benjamim, I redid the quiz and this time the first
question came out all right. PRESENT PERFECT.
( I’m kind of a Present Perfect freak because we
don’t have this tense of verb in my language, or rather, we do have, but that is a whole lot of a
differente story.)

Profile photo of Sonia1234 Sonia1234

Thanks for the lesson!
But could you change the quiz a little?
The difference between Past Simple and Present Perfect is not shown.
Only the rules of grammar.
