Present Perfect - Presentar Perfecta

We use the Present Perfect to say that things happened at an unspecified time before now. The exact time is not important. It has happened, I just don't care when. "Has happened" is a good example.

It is the same in English as in Spanish. Use the auxiliary helper, haber, with the past participle. The past participle is formed from the infinitive. Add -ado or -ido to the stem of the infinitive. Por ejemplo, hablar becomes hablado, and comer becomes comido.  


The auxilary verb is often the verb haber, the same as in English. The conjugations become:
He hablado. I have spoken. Has escrido. You have written. Ha comido. He has eaten. Hemos ido. We have gone. (Ir is irregular).
