    Understanding Grammar - The present perfect and a surprise party

    In this week's Premier Skills English Podcast, Rich, Jack and Rowan are preparing a leaving party for a friend. The language focus is on the present perfect and how it is used to connect past actions with present results and how we use it to talk about recent events. In this week's task, we want you to say no to three invitations and give excuses (using the present perfect). Don't forget to listen to the end of the podcast because we have a new football phrase for you to guess.
