1.4 Regular and Irregular Verbs in the Present Perfect

Faster English July 3, 2024

To form the Present Perfect tense, we need to use the past participle of the main verb. For regular verbs, the past participle is formed by adding “-ed” to the base form of the verb. For example:

Work -> Worked

Visit -> Visited

However, for irregular verbs, the past participle forms can be quite different from the base form. Some common examples include:

Be -> Been

Go -> Gone

Eat -> Eaten

Throughout this course, we will practice using both regular and irregular verbs in the Present Perfect tense.
