Present perfect 2 (продолжение)

Урок 8

Изучите следующий диалог:

Have you travelled a lot, Jane?
Yes, I’ve been to lots of places.
Really? Have you ever been to China?
Yes, I’ve been to China twice.
What about India?
No, I haven’t been to India.

Когда мы говорим о промежутке времени, который длится из прошлого до настоящего момента времени, мы используем present perfect (have been / have travelled и др.). Здесь, Дэйв и Джэйн говорят о местах, которые Джэйн посещала в своей жизни (а это промежуток времени, который продолжался до текущего момента).

Еще немного примеров:

  • Have you ever eaten caviar? (in your life)
  • We’ve never had a car.
  • Have you read Hamlet?’ ‘No, I haven’t read any of Shakespeare’s plays.’
  • Susan really loves that film. She’s seen it eight times!
  • What a boring film! It’s the most boring film I’ve ever seen.

Been (to) = visited = посещал:

  • I’ve never been to China. Have you been there?

В следующих примерах тоже говорят о периоде времени, который продолжается до текущего момента (recently / in the last few days / so far / since breakfast и др.):

  • Have you heard from Brian recently?
  • I’ve met a lot of people in the last few days.
  • Everything is going well. We haven’t had any problems so far.
  • I’m hungry. I haven’t eaten anything since breakfast. (= от завтрака до данного момента)
  • It’s good to see you again. We haven’t seen each other for a long time.

Мы используем present perfect со словами today / this evening / this year и др., когда эти промежутки времени не завершены к моменту речи (см. также урок 14B):

  • I’ve drunk four cups of coffee today.
  • Have you had a holiday this year (yet)?
  • I haven’t seen Tom this morning. Have you?
  • Rob hasn’t studied very hard this term.

Мы говорим: Это случилось в (первый) раз. Например:

  • Don is having a driving lesson. It’s his first one.
    It’s the first time he has driven a car. (not drives)
    or He has never driven a car before.
  • Sarah has lost her passport again. This is the second time this has happened. (not happens)
  • Bill is phoning his girlfriend again. That’s the third time he’s phoned her this evening.
