Faster English July 3, 2024

Hello, and welcome back to the “Master the Present Perfect Course!” Great work on completing Module 3! In this module, we’ll explore the usage of the Present Perfect tense for actions continuing into the present. Let’s keep up the momentum and further enhance our understanding of the Present Perfect tense!

The Present Perfect tense can be used to describe actions that started in the past and continue to the present. This usage emphasizes the connection between the past action and the present situation. For example:

I have worked at this company for three years.

They have lived in this city since 2010.

In both sentences, the Present Perfect tense highlights that the actions (working and living) began in the past and are still ongoing in the present.
