現在完了形を使ってみよう

The Present Perfect Tense
現在完了形を使って講師と会話してみましょう。
現在完了形は過去から現在までをつなげて表せるという表現方法です。 特に現在にフォーカスが当てられます。「have + 過去分詞」で表しましょう。 回答例のように、宿題を終わらせたばかりという臨場感が感じられます。 他にも現在完了形は「〜したことがある(経験)」、「ずっと〜している(継続)」、「だから〜だ(結果)」などの使い方ができます。 【回答例】 I have just finished my homework. ちょうど宿題を終わらせたよ

Have you seen Lisa this morning?
  - It is morning now.

Did you see Lisa this morning?
  -It is not morning now.

1. This is a typing error, it's "and".
2. and 3. "in the" is redundant here, it is common to just say "it is morning/it is not morning".
I am greatly impressed by your hard work so far, keep it up. Please continue making sentences using the present perfect tense.

Great job, keep practicing these sentences so you don't forget how to use the present perfect tense. Please continue making sentences.

Did you go to the movies yesterday?
  -Yes, but it was a mistake.
  The movie was awful and I felt that time was passing very slowly.

1. If you are talking about a cinema you need to say "movies", not "movie".
2. This is the correct sentence construction to be used in this case.

  • have never + 過去分詞(1度も〜したことがない)
