Introduction Ask your students to list a few weekly activities that they or their family members engage in. Ask them to describe the acts in full terms. A student might say, “I go to school,” for instance. My mother cooks food for me. My father goes for work. On the board, scribble some of the sentences (verbatim, even if they contain mistakes) and structure of the tense. Students should study the examples and fix any errors they find after using structure. You can assist them by providing guidance, such as: Does anything sound odd when you read it aloud? Describe the various participles a verb can have. A verb is a present participle if it expresses an action that is currently occurring, such as jumping. It is a past participle if it refers to an action that has already taken place (e.g. jumped). Tell them that you can determine a verb’s irregularity by looking at its past participle. A verb is a regular verb if the past participle ends in -ed, as in “laughed.” Any verb that doesn’t finish in -ed, like ran, is irregular.   Assertive SentenceSubject + has + V3 + Object (Singular);   Example:  He has spoken English Assertive SentenceSubject + have + V3  + Object (Plural); Example:  They have spoken English Negative SentenceSubject + has/have +not+ V3 + Object (Singular); Example: They have not spoken English Interrogative SentenceHas/have+Subject+V3+Object?
