The Present Perfect with for and since
We have now come to the end of the second Assessment and 2 ESO, pictured here, have been studying a very misunderstood and misused tense in English, the Present Perfect!
The boys have been trying to get to grips with it, while trying to avoid the typical mistakes that language learners make, such as 'How long are you here?' 'I am here since two days ago.'
Being able to use this tense well is one of the things which characterises good language learners. Of course, they need to understand the form, concept and use, which doesn't usually happen overnight. Like many things in life, it requires a great deal of time and effort!
