i can not understand the different from "have" and "had"?

i have eat
i have eaten
i had eaten

please help me

Hi fahri,

I'm afraid we can't answer questions like this in the comments section! This requires descriptions of several verb forms/tenses which would be very long. This is information which we have in our grammar section, and if you wish to study these forms then you can find the information there. A good place to start is this page.

The first sentence is incorrect - there is no form 'have eat' in English.

The second sentence is an example of the present perfect form.

The third sentence is an example of the past perfect form.

thank you sir.
Why i confuse? because this word.
i have read - present perpect
i had read - past perpect
i read - simple past
v1,v2,v3 it is same read,read,read
i have eaten - present perpect = S+have/has+v3
i had eaten - past perpect = S+had+v3
i ate - simple past= S+v2
my question is :
is that correct? all of my forms?
i ask you sir because i don't know this.
thank you for your answer sir.

Hello fahri,

Yes, those forms are correct, though 'perpect' is not the right name - it is 'perfect'. By the way, it can take us a couple of days to answer questions sometimes, so there's no need to post them more than once.

All the best,

Hi zohrab2,

At the bottom of each task you should see arrows pointing left < and right > which you can use to move from question to question. When you've completed all of the questions click 'Finish' to see your score.

why can't I see the grammar ( i.g. word order in sentences etc ) after the lessons ?
What can I do ?

Hello Rossella,

The tags at the bottom of the page (the little green boxes you refer to) aren't working. For now, I'd suggest you use the search facility at the top right of the page – press or click on the small magnifying glass. Actually, we don't have a page specifically dedicated to word order in sentences, but if there's a specific issue you'd like help with, let us know and we'll try to help.

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team

Thank you so much , this is the first time I understand exactly the present perfect
