About Our Past Simple vs. Present Perfect Worksheets
In this section, you can find worksheets that combine the past simple and present perfect tenses. Once students learn a new tense, in this case probably the present perfect, review other tenses that might be confused with it so that students can learn the subtleties of each tense that they may not have noticed the first time around. These worksheets can help you conduct such reviews more efficiently and also save you time planning lessons. There are currently 107 worksheets in this section. Let’s take a look at one of them. This popular worksheet has sixteen sentences that students have to complete with either a past simple or present perfect verb. It is creatively organized and includes subject matter that students may be interested in such as facts about famous people. For even more ideas on how to teach the difference between these tenses, take a look at the article posted on this page.
