    Present perfect simple

          The present perfect simple is : have/has + past participle.

    The past participle often ends in -ed ( finished / decided ..), but many important verbs are irregular (lost/done/been..)

       When we use the present perfect there is always a connection with now . The action in the past has a result now :

        ' Where's you key ? '  ' I don't know . I've lost it '  ( I haven't got it now. )


        He told me his name but I've forgotten it .( I can't remember it now. )

       We often use the present perfect simple to give new information or to announce a recent happening :

        Ow! I've cut my finger.

      The road is closed. There has been an accident .
