In today's English language online lesson we will be dealing with the use of the present perfect with Ever and Never ESL Activities, Games and Worksheets.

Using ever and never with the Present Perfect

When we use ever or never we talk about actions that took place at an unknown time in the past. To indicate that the present perfect is used to talk about life experiences. Yet, in some other cases we use these two words for different functions - you can check our English grammar section for further details - in order to give advice or in statements or fact such as:
"I never travel without a map."
"Never leave children alone."

What is the difference between ever and never?

Use Of Ever In English:

"Ever" is an adverb which means at any time or at all time. we mostly use it for questions to ask about life experience with something at any time ⌚ before now. Thus, the time of the action is not important or specified as the focus is on knowing if the person had this or that experience. It can also be used with the expression "The first time" or in negative statements.
