have/has/had in use

This video will show you how to use the verb ‘to have’. As you know, it is a very simple irregular verb, with only four forms: have and has in the present, had in the past, and having as the present participle.

Some of you will already know that some English speakers use ‘have/has got’ for possession. It’s not quite true, however that ‘have’ is American English and ‘have got’ is British. I’ve often heard Americans use ‘have got’!

Please note that ‘have’ in the sense of ‘to consume’ or ‘to take’ can never be ‘have got’

I had a shower this morning. NOT I’ve got a shower this morning”
