Perfect Tenses

We use the perfect tenses to talk about an event that happened prior to another event. So in past perfect, we talk about something that happened before a past event. In present perfect, we talk about something that happened before now. And in future perfect, we talk about something that will have happened before a future event. The perfect tenses are made up of compound verbs: “haber,” conjugated in past, present or future tense, and the past participle of the verb. This is a lot like how we form the perfect tense in English: I had eaten before he arrived (past perfect), I have already eaten (present perfect), and I will have eaten by the time he arrives, for example. Read on to learn how to form the past participle, and from there, conjugate in all the perfect tenses!
