have had

In this lesson, Gabby makes it easy to see events in time by using the terms “have/has had”. This is a way of using the present perfect tense in English to take an event from the past and connect it to the present. This is a technique describing an event that has not necessarily been completed.

>If you say, “I had to study a lot this week”, it indicates that the act of studying was started and completed. However, by saying, “I have had a lot of studying this week”, it indicates that while you had a lot of studying so far this week, there might be more studying to come.
