    Re: how to use helping verbs?

    Hello Gordhan Sharma,
    Have you learned about the present perfect yet?

    For example:

    I ate at that restaurant last week.
    I have eaten at that restaurant many times.

    This link may help you: http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/601/01/
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    HAVE is used in the formation of the perfect aspects:

    I have lived in Prague for 14 years. - Present perfect.
    Have you ever been to China?

    Mary had left when I arrived. - Past perfect.

    George has been playing with the children all afternoon. - Present perfect progressive.
