To present the present perfect tense (have + past participle) with the function of talking about past actions that relate to the present time; to provide controlled and semi-controlled spoken and written practice of the present perfect tense.
for the students to be able to speak for fluency using the present perfect tense to answer some questions based on life experiences.
Procedure (38-48 minutes)
I will display the PPT presentation. On the first page I have wrote 5 sentences about me in the present perfect tense. I will ask students if they have noticed similar words. Highlight the words and tell that include (has + verb) Ask Ss "what are they trying to show? Can you guess?" Tell Ss that they are trying to show my experiences. When you want to show an experience you will use the present perfect.
I will move on to the next slide in the PPT and start explain about the present perfect tense. Ask students: Is yesterday finished? (They should say it’s finished.) Ask them: Is today finished? (They should say it isn’t.). I believe it is the best best way to ensure that students understand when the present perfect is used to contrast finished and unfinished time. Then, I will introduce the Present Perfect – Irregular verbs.
Put the Ss in breakout rooms to answer the questions.
Answer the questions together in the main room. Go back to the first slide of the PPT. Tell students that there is a false statement. Let the Ss make guesses. Give student 2-3 minutes to write about their own experiences. Ask them to write 2 True and 1 False statements. Send Ss to breakout rooms to discuss the sentences and try to find the false statement. I will be monitoring to check sentences structures.
