Present Perfect Simple FORM: have / has + past participle USE: connects the past and the present We use it when we talk about an action which started in the past and continuous up to the present, especially with state verbs. e.g. I have been a teacher for eight years.
We use the present perfect simple for an action which has recently finished and has a result now. e.g. I have prepared dinner. (= and now here it is) The exact time of a past action is not mentioned The present perfect simple is used to announce a recent happening. e.g. I have bought a new car.
