Objectives
I can

a. identify and recognize the present perfect tense.

b. use the present perfect tense to talk about my experiences.

WHEN we use PP...
There is always a CONNECTION with the past and with the present.
SO...
we use the Present Perfect Tense to talk about a finished action happened in unspecific time in the past with a result in the present or an unfinished action or state that started in the past and continues to the present.


e.g.
life experience: Gran hasn't been to Egypt.
a continuing state: She has been in London for many years.

We do not intend to describe when and what we did exactly. We only want to tell others if we did it. The action was in the past. In my head, I have a memory of it now.  I know something about it; I have experience of it.
e.g. Have you ever been there?
We have never eaten caviar.


Where did you go and what did you do last summer?
