The correct use of "already" and "yet" in the present perfect doesn't come naturally to students, but it can! Allowing students to discover grammar rules by working together in cooperative learning groups both decreases teacher talk and instills deductive reasoning skills into students. When they can articulate rules into their own words, they own them and will be more like to both remember them and use them correctly.
In this linguistic investigation, students will work together to discover the rules for using "already" and "yet" in the present perfect.
This activity was designed for intermediate-level adult ESL students.
A practice page is included. (please see the preview)
