  • Presentation of the new theme. “Present Perfect Continuous and Present Perfect Simple”
The Present Perfect Continuous
 Утвердительная формаВопросительная формаОтрицательная форма
… + have/has been + IVHave/Has … been  +  IV ?… have/has not been +  IV
I have (=I’ve) been playing.

Я играю. ( уже с … )

Have I been playing?

Я играю?

I have not (=I haven’t) been playing.

Я не играю.




has been playing

=(…’s been playing)




been playing?He



has not been playing

=(hasn’t been playing)




have been playing

=(…’ve been playing)




been playing?We



have not been playing

=(haven’t been playing)


Present Perfect Continuous образуется при помощи    вспомогательного глагола to be в форме Present Perfect ( have been, has been ) и причастия настоящего времени смыслового глагола — Present Participle (IV форма или  ing-форма).




Present Perfect Continuous  употребляется для выражения:

Длительного действия начавшегося в прошлом и продолжающегося до момента речи, причем:

  1. 1. Действие может еще продолжаться в момент речи (при этом необходимо указать длительность периода действия);
  2. 2. Действие закончилось непосредственно перед моментом речи, а его результат присутствует в настоящий момент.


The Present Perfect
 Утвердительная формаВопросительная формаОтрицательная форма
… + have/has + IIIHave/has … +  III ?… have/has not +  III
I have (=I’ve) played.

Я сыграл. ( уже или ранее )

Have I played?

Я сыграл?

I have not (=I haven’t) played.

Я не сыграл.




has played

=(…’s played)







has not played

=(hasn’t played)




have played

=(…’ve played)







have not played

=(haven’t played)


Present Perfect образуется при помощи вспомогательного глагола to have в настоящем времени ( have, has ) и причастия прошедшего времени смыслового глагола — Past Participle (III-я форма или ed-форма).

Форма Present Perfect имеет временной акцент «до настоящего момента» и употребляется тогда, когда необходимо подчеркнуть, что результат некоего действия, случившегося в прошлом (не важно, непосредственно перед моментом речи или в более отдаленное время), присутствует в настоящий момент, например: have lost the key.  Я потерял ключ. (значит сейчас я без ключа)
