THIS WEEK’S CATEGORY IN ASAP ENGLISH WORKSHOPS:
CULTURES AND TRAVELLING
Topics connected with: travelling experience
Talking about travelling can come down to particular verbs and popular structures. Let’s look at it before we start our next week’s conversations.
⭐ Have you ever been to Mexico?
When we talk about our total life experience, we must use a sentence like:
- I have never been to New York but I would like to.
- I have visited Verona twice.
- Yes, I’ve been there a few times.
We use HAVE/HAS + person + 3rd form of the verb when asking a question about general experience, when starting a conversation. Then…
⭐⭐ How long did you stay?
When talking about the details of the trip we must say something like:
- When did you go there?
- How long did you stay?
- Where did you stay?
- Did you visit the famous museum in Amsetrdam?
- Was the hotel clean?
- Did you rent a car?
As you can see the questions regarding the past are fairly simple. All you need to use it DID + person +present verb or was/werewhen you mean “be” in the past.
