Present Perfect Tense English exercises

 to practice using the present perfect for experience. Students can practice vocabulary associated with aquatic animals, as well as practice English through the present perfect grammar exercises. There are questions and answer listening activities and English sentence building games as well.



This game focuses on the present perfect tense for experience with four main sections. There is a vocabulary practice section and a spelling section. There are also some activities for conversation practice and exercises for listening practice. The question and answer activities are associated with the ESL Curriculum - Unit 14.

The questions and answers for these grammar games are as follows.

  • A: What have you eaten?
  • B: I have eaten octopus.
  • A: Have you ever touched a seahorse?
  • B: Yes, I have./No, I haven't.
  • A: What have you seen?
  • B: I have seen a killerwhale.
  • A: Have you ever caught a swordfish?
  • B: Yes, I have./No, I haven't.

Other notes:

  • These activities use the 'animals 4' vocabulary set from MES English. These are aquatic animals. Students can learn the animal names, practice the vocabulary and spelling as well through the first three exercises.
  • The present perfect tense games only deal with experience in sample sentences like the above. There are 6 verbs used in these activities: 'seen', 'touched', 'eaten', 'caught', 'cooked', and 'found'. I tried to limit the amount of verbs.
