6 Present perfect/simple past
Present perfect; Use it to talk about a general experience in the past but we don't say when: Eg Have you seen his new film? Yes, I have seen all his films. Simple past; use it to talk about a specific moment in the past; “When did you see the film? I saw his last film last week” Expressions we use with present perfect: How long?¿cuanto tiempo? Just, Already, Yet In ages-en mucho tiempo,durante años Ever, Never, Recently Expressions we use with the simple past: When..? Two years ago Last week, month, year... Yesterday

A child started doing his homework when he got home from school an hour ago. Now he just walked into the kitchen to ask for a small snack. His mother tells him he should go to do his homework. He replies: “I have done my homework” The action started in the past an hour ago and continued until he came to the kitchen. Present perfect is used to describe actions that take place between the past and the present time.

DIFFERENCES: Present Perfect Simple: There’s a connection with the present: Paul has broken his left arm (it is still broken) Actions that happened at an unspecified time in the past: I have been abroad many times. Simple Past: - Actions finished in the past: Paul broke his arm when he was 12. (His arm is no longer broken) Actions that happened at a specific time in the past: Mary went abroad last Summer.

Conversations often begin in the present perfect (with a general question: have you ever or how long..?) and then change to the past simple to ask for or give specific details eg. When ,what, where,who with etc A.-Have you ever been to London? B.-yes, I have. A.-when did you go there? B.-I went last year A.-what did you do? I visited the British museum, I saw The London Eye and Buckingham Palace. A.-Did you have a good time? B.-yes, I did. London is wonderful!

A.-Have you seen the movie “the Hunger Games? B.-yes, I have. A.-when did you see it? B.-I saw it last year. A.-Did you see it at home? No, I saw it in the cinema. A.- What did you think of it? B.-It was fantastic!

-Ever is used in questions and goes between the verb have and the past participle. Have you ever played squash? Have you ever travelled abroad? Never is used to make a negative statement and goes between the verb have and the past partciple I have never played squash I have never travelled abroad.

12 COMPARE BEEN AND GONE Sally has been to London (=she went to London and came back) Sally has gone to London (=she's in London now) Peter isn't here. He has gone shopping. I've just been to the supermarket. Look at all the food I've bought! I've already been to the post office so you don't need to go.
