Have you ever... questions are a must when it comes to teaching the present perfect. They also make a great icebreaker when starting a new ESL/ELL class. Design for 16+ ESL/EFL students. No profane or sexual content here, folks! Google Slides or Google Doc formats included.


The questions come in groups of 10 and are organized into topics.

  • Animals
  • Foods
  • Crime
  • Money
  • Experiences
  • Hobbies
  • Travel
  • Personal Style
  • Mystics
  • Sports
  • Relationships.


Endless uses for these prompts in the classroom and online settings. Here are some of my ideas:

  • Read out a question. Have students guess how many students have or haven't done the question. Then take a class vote.
  • Give the questions to the class, but omit the verb. Students must decide which verb to use, and answer in the present perfect tense.
  • Have students take a survey of their classmates using 3 questions of their choice.
  • Read a question. Have students speed read through the list. The first student to correctly read the number of that question wins.
  • Have students write a response to one of the questions they have done.
  • Have students write their own questions to add to the list.
  • Ask one student a question. The student must always answer "Yes, I have." Other students then ask them follow up questions to determine if the student is lying or telling the truth.


I hope this easy list of questions saves you much prep time and brain juice.

I'd love to hear some more of your teaching ideas.
