Present Perfect vs Present Perfect Continuous(part I)

When I arrived home the party hadalreadyfinished.

We form past perfect with had + past participle

I/you/he/she/it/we/they had worked .

I/you/he/she/it/we/they had not( hadn’t ) worked.

Had I/you/he/she/it/we/they worked?


had = ‘d             had not = hadn’t

Some verbs are ‘ regular’ , other verbs are ‘irregular’ :

  • The past participle of regular verbs has an –ed ending ( example: clean –cleaned , play–played )

When we add -ed to verbs , there are sometimes changes in spelling ( example : stop–stopped) .

  • Irregular verbs have different past participle forms ( eg. know —knew , sit--sat )

When do we use past perfect simple?

1. When we are talking about the past , sometimes when we refer back to an earlier past .
