Practice 1: using the present perfect simple

Write these sentences using the present perfect. Remember that words like never, just and only are usually before the main verb.

  1. sushi? (you / eat / ever?)
  2. my keys. ( I / lose / never)
  3. this film three times. (She / see)
  4. this book. (I / read / never )
  5. football twice this year. (I / play / only)
  6. champagne. (They / drink / never)
  7. an accident? (she / have /ever?)
  8. his brother? (he / hit / ever?)
  9. this grammar before. (we / not / study)
  10. my wallet yet. (I / not / find)

Practice 2: been or gone?

Complete these sentences with one word. Remember: "He has gone to France" means he is still in France. "He has been to France" means that he went to France and came back - he has had this experience.

  1. We've never skiing.
  2. Tom's shopping. He'll be back soon.
  3. Have you ever to the opera?
  4. Where's your sister? Has she to work?
