    Present perfect or past simple

    Present perfect :

    Exemple :

    I have gone / you have gone / he, she, it has gone / we have gone / they have gone

    Le present perfect est formé par : verbe 'to have' + participe passé du verbe.

    Il est utilisé pour exprimer un événement passé quand le temps exact n'est pas défini, ou que le temps mis en référence n'est pas encore fini (ex : up to now...) , ou que le temps de référence indique un événement ayant encore un lien avec l'actuel, ou que le résultat de l'événement est encore ressenti au moment où on parle.

    N.B. En anglais britannique, il faut utiliser le present perfect avec les mots already, still, yet, just. 

    Simple past :

    Exemple :

    I went / you went / he, she, it went/ we went / they went

    Le past simple est formé par la forme au passé du verbe.

    Le simple past exprime un événement passé où le moment est spécifié (ex : yesterday...).

    Exercice : compléter par les réponses qui conviennent aux événements
