    Present perfect

    When we want to show relation between present tense and past tense, we use present perfect tense. It means, when we talk about a period, that it isn't finished.

    Also we may use present perfect tense to show something that occurred at a phase in the past before now. Finally we use present perfect tense to talk about something that occurred in an unspecific time in the past but is related to the present.

    These time words are: ever, never, before, up to now, still, so far, recently, just,already. Also we usually use today, this week,this month and this year in present perfect tense. The word yet is used in the negative and interrogative sentences.

    Affirmative Form:

    Subject + have/has + past participle.

    Jane has just started her third semester at the university.

    Negative form:

    Subject + have/has + not + past participle.

    Kevin has not planned to work in that factory.

    Interrogative form:

    Have/Has + subject + past participle?

    Have you ever been to Nova Scotia?
