  • Let's get started with the lesson.

  • Firstly, let's talk about the basics.

  • Let's start with the present I you, we they and plural mounds go with have bean.

  • I have bean, They have bean.

  • The dogs have bean.

  • The Children have bean.

  • He she it singular Announce Onda Uncountable mounds go with Has bean.

  • She has bean.

  • It has bean.

  • The cat has bean.

  • The water has bean.

  • The past is much easier.

  • All of the subjects can go with had bean I had bean, she had bean The people had bean, it had bean.

  • Now let's talk with the first and easiest use off Have bean has bean and had bean.

  • This might be the easiest, but it's where a lot of my students get confused and make mistakes we use.

  • Have Bean has Bean and had bean when talking about travel experience.

  • For example, we have Bean to Seville many times.

  • This means we have visited Seville many times, notes that it's bean too, but just visited without too.

  • That's another common mistake.

  • Another example.

  • I've bean to Italy three times I've visited Italy three times I reduced Have to just apostrophe ve I've We can also use it as a question.

  • For example, have you bean to Mexico?

  • Yes, I've bean to Mexico or No, I haven't bean to Mexico.

  • Please note that we can't talk about specific times.

  • I have bean to Mexico.

  • Last year is wrong.

  • We're talking about general experience, life experience, not specific times.

  • Now we will talk about had bean a little bit more in the next section.

  • But just to give a general overview you can use had bean when talking about travel experience.

  • We used had bean when talking about two events in the past.

  • For example, when I visited Milan last year, I had never bean to Italy before.

  • There are two past tense verbs here.

  • I visited in the simple past, and I had never Bean both happened in the past, and it means up until the point last year, when I went to Tamerlan for the first time.

  • Before that, I had never visited Italy.

  • We'll talk more about this in the next section.

  • Let's discuss the second use of these forms, actions or situations that started in the past and are still continuing now.

  • For example, I have been studying English for three years, or I have been studying English since 2016.

  • When we use four, we're talking about the duration or the amount of time.

  • 46 years, 42 months when we say, since we're talking about the starting 0.2016 was my starting point for studying English.

  • So with studying English, I started in 2016 and I have continued for three years until the present day.

  • Another example.

  • William has been watching TV since midday, or William has been watching TV for four hours per assuming it's four in the afternoon Now.

  • We don't always want to talk about a specific action.

  • We might just want to talk about a situation without focusing on that specific action.

  • For example, he has beena cleaner for 11 months.

  • He has beena cleaner since January, or we've bean together for 2.5 years.

  • We've been together since 2000 and 17.

  • Now let's take a deeper look into hard bean.

  • I'm going to take the sentences that we use to learn, have Bean and has bean and show you how they're used with had Bean on, we'll see how the meaning changes.

  • So let's take.

  • I have been studying English for three years.

  • Let's look at the first example.

  • I had been studying English for three years.

  • When I left the school, I started studying English at a specific point in the past.

  • Three years ago.

  • I continued studying for three years, and then I left the school.

  • It ended.

  • It finished.

  • I stopped studying English.

  • Very sad.

  • Never stop in the present.

  • I no longer study English.

  • There are two past actions here.

  • One continuous past action.

  • I had a bean studying English Onda single finished action at the end I left.

  • Compare this to the previous sentence.

  • I have been studying English for three years.

  • Here, there is only one continuous action.

  • It hasn't finished its continuing in the present.

  • Only use had Bean.

  • If there are two actions in the past one continuous action on one single finished action, let's have a look at the other example sentences and change them to have Bean.

  • William had been watching TV for four hours when he stopped to do some housework.

  • The continuous action had bean watching on the single finished action stopped.

  • He stopped.

  • He had Bean a cleaner for 11 months.

  • When he quit his job.

  • The continuous action he had bean on the single finished action.

  • He quit on the last one.

  • Sad one.

  • We had been together for 2.5 years.

  • When we broke up the continuous action, we had bean on the single finished action.

  • We broke up.

  • Now let's move on to the third and final use of Have Bean has bean and had bean.

  • We use them in the passive voice.

  • Now I use the website eBay a lot.

  • I don't like a bid on things I like to submit offers, and I received a lot of emails telling me your offer has Bean accepted.

  • Your offer has been accepted.

  • This sentence is in the passive voice in the active voice.

  • It would be the seller has accepted your offer.

  • EBay uses the passive voice because the seller isn't important in this situation.

  • What's important is my offer.

  • So the focus of the sentence is on the offer.

  • Another example.

  • A postal company might say your parcels have been delivered to a neighbor.

  • That's the passive voice in the active voice.

  • They would say We have delivered your parcels to a neighbor.

  • Using the passive voice is a great technique for companies and politicians who want to remove any responsibility from a situation.

  • A politician might say.

  • Mistakes have been made instead off.

  • I have made mistakes.

  • The active voice focuses too much on them when the passive voice removes them from the situation.

  • So how do we use had bean in the passive voice?

  • Admittedly, it's not so common.

  • This is quite advanced, but it's important that you know it, cause I'm sure you will hear it.

  • We're years had Bean in the passive voice.

  • If this is a recurring theme, there are two actions in the past.

  • For example, the marketing campaign had just being launched when the agency shut down.

  • Both of the events or actions were in the past.

  • The first event that occurred is indicated with had Bean, so the campaign was launched first.

  • After that, the agency shutdown, the second event uses just a simple past tense.

  • Let's look at another example.

  • The plane had been waiting for fuel when the pilot noticed a problem again to events in the past.

  • The first event that occurred is had Bean on.

  • The second event uses a simple past tense noticed right.

  • Those are the uses for Have Bean has Bean and had Bean.

  • Now it's time for you to do a quiz.

  • I'm going to give you five questions with enough time to think about each one.
