I’ve stared to study my first English lesson about Presente Perfect.

Great job with your first sentence, Wagner! You used the present perfect correctly because you are giving us *new information* and you didn’t specify the time.

I’ve bought a new notebook for me! I’ve loved the first lesson of the present perfect!
Have a nice day David and Tim!

Thanks, Vera! Great job with your sentences.

I’ve bought a new book about leadership. Very interesting! Thanks Tim and David for this English lesson about Presente Perfect, I’ve loved it!

So glad you enjoyed the lesson, Rodrigo! Great job with your sentence! I like to read books about leadership, too.

I’ve bought a Phrasal Verbs Bundle from Tim & Tammy Teach and I’ve been enjoy it!

Great job, Fabian! Let me just make a little correction:

…and I’ve been enjoying it! (or) …and I’ve enjoyed it!

(The first option is called “present perfect continuous”, and it *emphasizes* that your studies continue in the present.)

Present Perfect also indicates that something continues in the present; but the continuous *emphasizes* this fact.

Thanks a lot!

You bet!


Thanks for sharing your knowledge with us!

Hi Teacher ! I have a doubt: What is  the past participle? How is used in English? Why  and How we must use? Can you inform some examples? Many Thanks

Hello, Jorge. There are three forms of any verb in English. Present – Past – Past Participle (go – went – gone (irregular) ; live – lived – lived (regular)). You will learn when to use the Past Participle in different contexts. For example, you will always use the Past Participle with the Present Perfect). Subject + have/has + Past Participle.

Many thanks for your expanation. I´m enjoying the Present Perfect course. Congrats.
