How to understand and use the English present perfect tense in conversation
Ability to understand English to intermediate level.
Do you struggle with the present perfect tense in English? Are you unsure when to use the past simple or present perfect? In this course you will learn how natives use the present perfect in five different ways as well as the basics of the tense and I provide you with examples of how and when to use it. By the end of the course you should have a much better understanding of why we use this ‘strange’ tense and why we don’t just use the past simple and continuous.

Intermediate level English (ESL) learners
