Average: 3.6 (17 votes)

Look at these two present perfect simple example sentences:

"The government has said they are going to introduce legislation."

"This is the first part of the report that we’ve agreed with."


The present perfect simple is have/ has + past participle.

"I haven't finished yet."
"She has been to Russia."
"Have you finished your homework?"
"Has he done the exercise?"


We use the present perfect simple to talk about a period of time that continues from the past until now.
