Present simple, present perfect, past tense
I have used this as a test (present simple, continuous, perfect and past simple). But focus is mostly on past simple and present perfect. Present simple and present continuous are there only to make it more " exating" :) This could be a great exercise (training, test) for past simple and present perfect for intermediate and advanced learners.
