Present Perfect for Beginners

The present perfect is formed by the verb “have” and the past participle of the verb:

“I have been to Guadalajara.”

The basic use for this tense is to talk about things that happened in the past, up until now. It doesn’t matter when that happened, or how many times, or how long ago. The only thing that matters is: that it happened 😀

It’s used to talk about previous experiences, specially in this way:

“Have you ever visited Disneyland?”
“Yes, I have.”
