Present Perfect Tense

The present perfect tense is formed with have/has + a past participle. There are several situations in which we use this tense:

To talk about something that was true in the past, and is still true in the present, as in, "I have been married for five years."

To talk about something that happened at an unspecified time in the past, as in, "Becky has visited China several times already."

To talk about something that happened during a period of time that has not yet ended, as in, "I have gone to three parties so far this month."

When used with "just," to talk about something that happened very recently, as in, "My mother has just arrived."

To ask someone if they have gone somewhere and returned, or if they have done something, as in, "Have you been to the new restaurant?" In this case, it is formed with have/has + subject + a past participle.

When you see words like for, since, ever, already, and so far in a sentence, it often means that you need to use the present perfect tense.

Right after selecting the main theme, prior to starting to make the content of your speech, it’s beneficial to decide upon the tone of your speech. Commonly, an informal and appealing tone is used by many guests who are required to offer a speech for the newly weds. Yet, make your speech a lot more formal if you are a woman who is distant and has a flinty aura. You also need to consider what kind of individuals will listen to your speech, as well as their age, occupation, attitude, and so on. Ensure that they can connect with just what you’re saying so that the entire message of your speech for the wedding toast of the groom’s mother is evidently imparted. Make your speech intriguing and easy to understand by incorporating appropriate contents. Also, you need to make sure that your tone of voice, your language, your clothes and also the gestures that you use while giving your toast are consistent with the selected tone of speech.
