    Default Re: how do we form perfect tenses

    Yes- have + past participle

    You can then hange the tense of 'have', to the past, etc:
    have done
    have been doing (progressive form - have + past participle (been) + present participle of verb)
    had done
    had been doing
    will have done
    will have been doing
    etc
