I have shared with you about Present Perfect and I am sure you have practise in using it or make some drilling by building your sentences with your own words. Hereunder I am going to give some explanations about Present Perfect Progressive (Continues). You can also use the present perfect progressive for present perfect (simple)

Here is the formula for you to remember:

Subject + (has/have) + been + (verb + ing)

Some examples of sentences:

  • John has been living in the same house for twenty years  — John has lived in the same house for twenty years.
  • John has been working in Washington for three years.
  • John has been to California three times
  • It has been raining hard since yesterday and it is still raining.
