Present perfect
Intermediate level


Students will practice the Present Perfect through speaking and writing activities. I will start the class with a time line activity to introduce the topic followed by one brief presentation, and finish the class with a writing task. After each stage there will be some sort of questions asked to make sure students understood the grammar and to give them more time to practice their English .
