Grammar. Who loves it? Very few of us do. The honest to God truth is that grammar is a pesky, albeit, necessary part of every language. The more I experience life from the teacher’s side of the table, the more I understand that a common problem is the perfect tense.
You may know it as the one which requires words such as «have been», «has been» and «will have been». While this tense is not as common as the present / past simple / continuous, it is important to grasp as you are studying the language.
The perfect tense is, well perfect for those of us who enjoy history, or want to tell about our lives and experiences up until this point. It enables the speaker to bring the audience up to speed on feelings, thoughts, knowledge and previous actions which have led the speaker to the present time.
Can one master the perfect tense? Of course you can! I have found a wonderful website with explanations and practice for those interested in leveling up their English knowledge and abilities. And, as always, the answer lies in consistent practice. You are also invited to join one of our many speaking clubs or individual/group lessons which will enhance your current speaking level. You can do it!
