PAST SIMPLE AND PRESENT PERFECT SENTENCES

This is an English language lesson to practice sentence speaking and writing in the past simple, present perfect and present perfect continuous.

There are thirty short sentences in the exercise.

Sentences are written in groups of three to be one sentence for each of the three tenses.

Sentence 1 – past simple

Sentence 2 – present perfect

Sentence 3 – present perfect continuous

You should practice both writing and speaking all of the sentences.

This is our model example:

I lived in Japan                                    (past simple)

I have lived in Japan                           (present perfect)
