Food and Drink- Present Perfect Saying Yes Bluffing Game
Ask a yes/ no Present Perfect question about food and drink, maybe using the words or on
the topics on the next page, for example “
Have you ever eaten in Pizza Express?” or 
Have you ever bought live fish?” Your partner must answer “Yes, I have”, even if that is 
not true, i.e. they are not allowed to say “
No, I haven’t” even if that is the case. Ask three 
questions about that experience, then guess if their answers are true or false. 

Do the same, but this time only using suitable time expressions other than “ever” such as 
those below. 

Time expressions for use with Present Perfect
ever
in the last three years/ two hours
recently
since I last saw you/ you left university/ you woke up this morning/…
this month/ week/ year/…
today

Grammar presentation
Why are all the time expressions above suitable for use with Present Perfect? Why do 
expressions like “
two years ago” and “last year” have to go with Simple Past?

What are the Past Participle forms of all the verbs above (“been”, “done”, etc)?
