having + past participle

 

In the grammar Level 6, you learn about sentence structure and how to put sentences together. In this lesson, you will learn how to use a form of sentence construction that is fairly common but not easy to put together. We use this type of a sentence to talk about past experiences and situations. Here are some examples:

1. Having learned that her grades were bad, Katy anticipated her parents’ reactions.
2. Having lived in Dubai for several years provided Katy with language skills in Arabic.

The first sentence is an example of a participle clause. The subject is Katy for both parts of the sentence. However, we don’t know the subject is Katy until after the end of the participle clause, so the subject is implied.

The second sentence is an example of a gerund phrase that functions as a subject. “Having lived in Dubai for several years” matches the verb “provided” and the object is “Katy.”

 

Exercise: Combine each pair of sentences to form one sentence.

Example. He lived in Spain for many years. He knows how to speak Spanish.

Having lived in Spain for many years, he knows how to speak Spanish.
