Section One: Structure ~ Have you ever (Yes/No) ~ Print (Sections 1 and 2): .docx /.doc


The present perfect uses the past participle or ¡°third verb tense¡±

as in: take (present) took (past) taken (past participle)


The simple question form: Have you ever verb + object

The simple answer forms: 1) Yes, I have. 2) No, I haven¡¯t.


The present perfect verb examines our lives from the beginning

(our birth) up to the present moment, thus ¡°Present Perfect¡±...


Example questions:


1) Have you ever eaten sushi? What kind? Where? 

2) Have you ever been to the tropics? When? Where?

3) Have you ever taken a trip using a bus? Tell the story.
