Transkript Simple Past or Present Perfect? (Übungsvideo)

Hello, my name is Camilla and I come from England. And welcome to the Simple past vs. Present perfect practice video. Before we start, you should know that this film is only in English! So it´s a good idea to have a dictionary ready, in case there are words, you don´t understand. Before we start with the exercises I´m going to remind you, of what you should have seen in the teaching videos. First of all, how do I form them? With regular verbs in the simple past, you take the verb in the infinitive and you add -ed. For example played. In the present perfect, you have the subject, which decides whether you add have or has plus the past participle, for example I have played. For irregular verbs however, in the simple past, you use the simple past version. For example eat is ate in simple past. And for the present perfect for irregular verbs you do exactly the same as for the regular verbs, so you take the past participle of the irregular verbs, for example he has eaten. The next question is: when do I use them? You use simple past to signal an event that happened in the past. For example last month I went to the cinema. You also use the simple past for an event completed in the past. For example: Between 2004 and 2008 I only ate carrots. And the present perfect is used for an action that happened in the past but is relevant to the present. For example: I have cleaned my teeth. It is also used for an action that is just being completed. For example: She has just passed her exam. The present perfect is also used for an event started in the past and continuing in the present. For example: He has lived in Berlin since 1988. And the last important question is: What are the signal words? The words that indicated the use of the simple past, are words like: yesterday, last week, last year, ten years ago and in 1762. For the present perfect, the signal words are just, yet, never, already, recently, lately, since, for and up to now. Great, now we can get going with the first exercise. Here is a text with some words missing. First you should listen to the text then I will give you the verbs, that you need to change either into the simple past or into the present perfect and fit them into the gaps. Here is the text. Bill BEEP a member of the swimming club since 1959. He is the oldest member. In 1962 he BEEP his first medal. The crowd BEEP wildly and Bill BEEP very proud. Recently, however, he BEEP swimming so fast. Instead he BEEP to become the official team cheerleader. The team BEEP him a pair of pompoms last week and Bill BEEP extremely happy! The verbs, that need to fit in the gaps, are: is, is, cheer, isn´t, win, decide, give and is again. How did you get on? Here is the text with all the right answers filled it. Bill has been a member of the swimming club since 1959. He is the oldest member. In 1962 he won his first medal. The crowd cheered wildly and Bill was very proud. Recently, however, he hasn´t been swimming so fast. Instead he has decided to become the official team cheerleader. The team gave him a pair of pompoms last week and Bill was extremely happy! Here is the 2nd text. Can you fill in the gas again? When Whitney Pears BEEP her head, the public BEEP shocked. One Newspaper BEEP "She BEEP always BEEP such beautiful blonde hair, up to now." Rumors BEEP circulating recently that Whitney BEEP from stress since becoming famous. In 1997 she BEEP her first single and BEEP a huge popstar ever since. The words that you should fit into the gaps are: is, have, suffer, shave, release, is, write and is. Now you can compare your answers. When Whitney Pears shaved her hear, the public was shocked. One Newspaper wrote "She has always had such beautiful blonde hair, up to now." Rumors have been circulating recently that Whitney has suffered from stress since becoming famous. In 1997 she released her first single and has been a huge popstar ever since. Ok, it´s now time for our last exercise, which is right or wrong. You need to look at the sentences and determine whether they are right or wrong, and if they are wrong see, if you can correct them. I was in the school running team since last year. Have you been to London recently, Martin? Katie has listened to the whole Spice Girls album before going out. Last week our teacher has picked up his book and has thrown it across the classroom! So, did you manage to identify them? Here are the wrong and the right answers. As you can see 3 sentences are wrong. Can you correct them? This is what the sentences should look like. I have been in the school running team since last year. Katie listened to the whole Spice Girls album before going out. Last week our teacher picked up his book and threw it across the classroom! Well done, you made it to the end of the practice video. So, just remember to look out for those signal words, and I´m sure you´ll find it very easy to tell the difference between simple past and present perfect. I hope you enjoyed the video, take care! Bye Bye!

    Hallo Markus,
    dieses Video dient vor allem der Übung der Zeitformen und nicht vordergründig der Erklärung. Vielleicht hilft dir dieses Video weiter: http://www.sofatutor.com/englisch/videos/simple-past-or-present-perfect Hier wird auf Deutsch erklärt und es gibt dafür auch eine ausführliche Übung, in der du deine Kenntnisse prüfen kannst.
    Viele Grüße aus der Englischredaktion.
